Should be fine, but please consider a different make of spring. Pi are as awful as they get. There are much better out there for the same sort of money.

I also have PI lowering springs, great. Why people seem to give them such a bad reputation i dont know. Btw they wont lower your car by 40mm as said on the tin, youre lucky if you get 30mm.

Pi springs in my experience, are cack

in my case they over compressed and caused a whole lot of damage to the CV joints and made my tyres bald on the inside due to excessive towing out

very very crashy and painful ride because of it too

but there are mixed opinions, so just hope you get a good set

Mate was a Pi reseller up until about 3 years ago. Fitted loads of them and had to replace lots due to them forever sagging or complaints about the ride quality. Went on to mainly sell Gmax or Avo's as budget springs and have very few complaints, and even less failures.

Granted they could have changed over the last 3 years, but from what I have read across the forums it seems this is not the case.

had PI's on my r214si and never had any problems with them, they certainly dont lower 40mm i wud say 30 is more accurate and although they are "very crashy" i wouldn't worry about them failing. had mine on for 2 years and never had a problem. good for the price.
