its a coil spring that goes over the shock absorber. essentially the up has "coilovers"already, but what us Modders call coilovers are a single unit shock and spring, with adjustable height.

ok, so you'd replace the ones it already has to be able to lower the car?

willowaz, thats not a girl question, I was about to ask as I did not know what they were and I'm an engineer...... The only reason I did not is I saw you had already asked.

Yea, allows you to alter the ride height of your car and make it look like this;




Can make the ride slightly bumpy though

thanks that makes me feel a little better, i kinda guessed roughly what they were but needed to ask.
my brother is always modifying his and other peoples cars, and i never really ask what he is doing. his car most definatly is an uncomfortable ride when there are any bumps because its sooo low

Just ordered my Up and it's supposed to be a "sensible" car after my current car (coilovers wound so low you can't even use dropkerbs)...

Like the idea of a 35mm drop with the AwesomeGTI springs, just to take the edge off.
