Default Lowering suspension

Hello,

very recently I've bought a set of meteor wheels. It looks so great!!!but.... There is a huge gap between the top of the tire and the arch.

This is how it is at this moment:


And this how I like to be:


Do you have suggestions using Rover suspensions?


My best regards,

How about these? They're Direnza brand bought online and shipped from Holland although I don't know where they're made.

Looking at the photo the front wheel looks out of place! It's not, the front wheels are turned out slightly, blame the missus.

Don't be too disappointed when you find the underside of your car keeps on hitting on the top of those Speed Bumps that are now appearing everywhere. ---

Fit zt springs and shocks, no issues with speed bumps.

Bonus too, the rest of the suspension will be designed specifically to 'work together' too (except of course subframe bushes).

I red brown would be my choice. They're firm, but a little compliant. The brown brown are very hard apparently (I haven't tried them.myself)
