Default Lowering springs for my B3 90 2.3 20v Sport (2WD)

I'm looking at the possibility of putting some lowering springs on the car to bring the ride height down a tad, 30 - 35mm ideally, 40mm max. I've been searching on-line and can't seem to find anything that's listed for my car. Does anyone know of any companies that cater for my car?

I had the same problem with my 90, Eibach used to do them, there are the occasional OEM Sport spec springs on the go but they are rare.

There’s little obvious available new unfortunately.

eBay Germany might be worth watching

I'm assuming you've changed the tyres and it still looks high?

I thought the car handled well but was firm (IMO).

Great car, would've liked to of kept it but glad you're keeping her well!

I changed the tyres to 205/45/16, and the car looks better for it, but there's still a wee bit too much of an arch gap

The car handles well on the current setup, and i agree it is quite firm, not as firm as the standard s-line suspension i had on my A4 though, that was seriously uncomfortable, sorted that with some Bilstein B8 shocks and H&R springs, and it completely transformed the car.

I'm delighted with the 90, just trying to keep on top of the maintenance - treated her to a new battery for Christmas, and going to carry out a service next month before getting her ready for a run round the NC500 in April with a couple of mates in their classics.
