When I have enough cash (in a million years), I'll hopefully get a Corrado as they're sweet!

Like the car Brian!

Looks well, it doesn't look as low in the pictures as it did when the shocks went in, but then when you compare the 2 side-on views you see the difference:





The standard ride height really is a joke, ruins the look of the car.

very true and when the car is droped the ride is so much better for handeling and grip
on another point if the damping on the front is adjusted to be very soft does it cause understeer ??

I wouldn't have thought so. I think if the front is soft then you have more chance of oversteer.

If you haven't had the front alignment redone though then that could be causing it

nope i got the car tracked balanced etc, last week, the car isnt under or oversteering i havened adjusted the
damping on the front yet i was just inquireing before i do adjust it, would i cause any problems if i do adjust it, im going to but it to the stiffest setting and softest setting give it a spin after each and see which is best

ps can any photoshop lads do a quick job on the side pic and put on some brockB2cup alloys, if they have a few minutes spare time, i dont have photoshop myself to do it,
thanks in advance b

If you stiffen the front too much then you will eventually cause understeer, I'd just wind it up a bit at a time until you are happy with the ride/handling balance.

Super looking car there Blue

My first Corrado was a Dimond Black VR with beige leather (Mmmm!)
Corrado looks the dogs dangulers in Black. Drop looks abt right for back roads around here. The 44 look has its advantages all the same
