Looks awesome man !!,
hows the camber at the rear? You can use a shim plate at the back to rectify the excessive camber.
I didnt lower mine cos didnt want too hard ride,

Looked Great, Drove Great but popped the Side Shaft CV so I went back to standard coils, drop was just to much, almost a 80mm drop.

I loved the look and still want to drop it but with a 40mm drop.

Why not consider coilovers then you can set your ride height any low you want. :)

Still looks good ,
Practicality of a lowered car is another story.
A close friend got hold of a set of Jamex lowering springs, but the rear coils soon collapsed. Common story with saffs if too low is that the circlip behind CV pops out .
Also coilovers only avialable from Uk,and they not cheap.
Eibach springs for Sapphires were avaible locally ,
