Hey all,
I was wondering what people have done to lower there scorps beyond the 30mm lowered springs you can buy?

I believe both Makita and Ryobi offer some form of height reduction beyond 30mm

Also, try Bosch. They might have something too

In all honesty, I'm not sure on how ppl with scorps have gone going past 30

From what I understand, the vast majority have been custom coilovers


U can try grabbing the 30mm springs, then have them professionally compressed further.....although this seems to be a "hit and miss" with ppl.

How many coils need to be clipped to go 50mm or 75mm lower. Is it the old standard of half a coil for a 1 inch drop.
