Would anything else need to be changed when fitting these?

Not sure on the rates. Feels a lot smoother than standard, yeah did the rears on my own. Got my mate to help me with the fronts today. Good job I did cos we had to angle grind the arb drop links off and fit some new ones. 24 quid for a pair and the springs were 90 on eBay, brand new in box.

Probably need to get the alignment checked afterwards and it's worth getting a garage to fit new arb drop links before you start unless you want to cut the old ones off and fit new ones yourself. I used an angle grinder and a new pair.

I think they're cheaper than the eibachs as well, I was going to have these in mine as they have good reviews

The fronts look a little high but will settle. The back will settle a lot. I have Tein on mine and the rear tyres sit level with the wheel arch trim. Good job doing it on your own though, much braver than I was lol.

I think they're something to do with noise suppression.
