I'm using the preload to adjust the ride hight. But my car have droop screws, so my droop will be decreased, as far as I can see.

Anyway, thanks for all your input, I didnt expected so many replys.

Plans was changed last night, so I didnt make any experiments. But I think I'll try to lower my ride hight sometime, when I got good time for experimenting. I believe I have to try it out, to know how it will effect on handling.

Didn't quite understand your last post about droop screws. If your car has screws for the droop adjustment then just use the screws to reset your droop after lowering the car. Otherwise shock length will have to be adjusted in someway to keep the same droop settings.

My last post was confusing, since I mixed it up. Of course, the cure is simply to re-adjust droop, after lowering the car.

And you're right, if I lower my car by 1 mm, the droop will increase by 1 mm.
