    F3392EC2-9D6F-41CF-9A26-C407639BC74E. Well this is my first time posting on this but i just bought a winter project for the new year

    Shes a ford Sierra 1.8cvh hatch. I know a snails faster but at the money i couldnt say no.

    Im looking to do the usual donegal spec mods, lower, rims, diff, exhaust, power and maybe change to a twin cam

    So far she has only been gettin tidyed up but is now sittin on nicer rims but badly needs lowered.

    Any recommendations for what way to lower it at a cost effective route, nothin overly dodgy tho

    And how to add wuick power tovthe 1.8 while its still in her. I want to keep the engine considerin how little miles it has

    Update
    Sierra got 2 new sills
    Boot spoiler
    50mm springs all round
    Straight through exhaust to resonator
    and mono steering wheel

    Still looking for engine swap ideas stuck between pinto, DOHC and a 2.9 BOB
    and either welding or putting a lsd in, heard the lsds r weak so dunno if it worth the hassle
    off getting it and getting hybrid shafts
    Also thinking of getting mk1 focus coilovers to get more lows on revos but we ill see

    Looks good. As far as coilovers you'd be better saving and buying a full set of Gaz or avo's the focus ones need a small bit of work to get to fit even though people say they are a straight swap. Plus you don't have to balls about cutting the rears.

    Cant seem to find a proper set of Gaz for a non cossie to suit the rear as the strut and spring are separate but cossies have them together, i know some people run van struts for lows but i dont know how low they go

    Cossie is a separate spring and shock the coilover just bolts in where the shock goes. I have them in my hatch drift car
