Look at HSport or M7. Those seem to be the two biggest names when it comes to the suspension with a drop.

I'm running the stock setup with an HSport rear sway bar. I'll see if I can dig up some pics of MINI's that are lowered.

M7: http://www.m7tuning.com/



Can't seem to find anything for HSport, maybe they stopped making stuff for the MINI.

Your drop looks pretty nice...its not too low nor is it too high.....just about right......do u know anyone who has hook-ups on some springs?

That's not my car, I don't have a drop. That's a picture of a random car with the M7 springs.

I don't know anyone with any hook-ups but you can look at M7tuning.com outmotoring.com or eBay to find the best deal.

If you're still looking, I just ordered a set of H-Sport springs from Webb motorsports. With a new sway bar it was about $450. I scored a set of Koni FSD shocks off eBay for $600 to go with them. I'll review them when I get them on.
