Thankyou citroening and thanks for the reply hill-bill!

I'm looking at a eibach set that lowers it 30mm at the front and 25mm at the back but it doesn't sound very much! That ones sitting perfectly, not to low but low enough to close the colossal gap between tire and arch haha so maybe il have a look around for 30mm kit. Anyone got any links?

And yes I live in Wymondham and to be completely honest I've had my loeb for nearly a year now and have seen 1 other loeb on the road and that was red haha, I never realised when I bought the car just how rare they were!!

Tom has just lowered his with the Eibach 30mm and there's a few pics in his thread here - I've seen them advertised on eBay etc but I'm sure Tom will let you know where he got his from. - Click Here - - Click Here -

Indeed they're a rare sight on the roads! I've seen a Red one near Downham Market and a Black one just down the road from here which I thought was mine...!

I venture to Wymondham every couple of months, namely for the EAMA Classic Car Auction. Next one is 22nd March, so there will be another C4 Loeb in Wymondham that day...

Would I need uprated shocks or not really? I can't find a 30mm all round drop anywhere, they all seem to be 30mm front and 25mm rear.

Haha might see you around!

They won't give completely level drops. They look fine though, loads of people have fitted them and while 30mm doesn't sound much it can look quite good.

Wouldn't worry about the difference between the front and rear height wise either. The thing is that you can drop the front end around 80mm before the wheels start to even think about tucking into the arches. The rear will start tucking in at 60mm.

So the manufacturers take that into account. As well as making the best springs for their specific handling and ride quality balance they have worked too.

30mm drop will be fine on stock shocks. Although depending on how old they are can be worth doing them at the same time.

Personally I'd stick with the Eibach's - a lot of people on here have used them and also good reviews too. Not heard much re Apex ones...

Might be worth looking into pairing the springs with some hubcentric wheel spacers to just fill the arches out a bit more.

I'm sure Tom (hillbill) will give you a link to the ones he bought as they look great on his car.
