  1. Do shortened shocks affect ride height?

    i put a set of coilovers in my leon, and the front looks great but the back still sits a bit high for me i’ve seen people on facebook say shortened shocks will drop it more but from what i know i thought it’s only springs that determine ride height anyone have any experience with this?

    Ibiza sport 2008 1.4
