I had my cabrio lowered a couple of years ago, I used shocks and springs but made the mistake of not buying adjustable ones and now I want to go lower.

Been looking on e-bay and prices range from 199 to 600. I know you pay for what you get but I have alot to do to the car before it comes back out in 6 weeks and funds are tight.

For instance I can get JOM for 209. Are they any good? Can anyone recommend better for similar money?

Joms aint bad really for the money. I have them on my mk4 i would have thought on a car lighter than a mk4 the ride would be bouncy as hell. Just did my topmounts on my golf today and found one of the shocks has pissed oil oit everywhere so its time for an upgrade. They have been on two years, but mine was fully wound down on cut coilover springs at one point so they have been abused! I would save a bit more and get some weitecs or something along those lines.

Chris.

I would go for JOMS over jamex anyday really. I have heard some nasty stories of jamex stuff not even having bolt holes drilled right and messed up threads.
