Why not? Well for one, they aren't designed for the weight of your car. Secondly, you have to turn the front ones upside down to fit them which isn't safe imo.

Lowering 60mm on standard shocks will **** them as well, meaning you'll have to get shortened shocks - which means you may as well either just lower it on springs designed for the C or buy some coilies.

i had these on the back of my C, looked really good (is around -60mm) but get anyone in the back of the car and its like jelly suspension!

Get a cheap set of coilies as in the end it will be cheaper than a set of B backs and C fronts with delivery, effort etc, and will be much better ride and you can get it lower and will last longer

wish i had got them rather than springs tbh..

suppose you wanted to buy a corsa for £2000, suppose further you found corsa for £1000, but it was a CatC, it ''does the same job'' and probably easier to come by but its most likely to come withalot more saftey hazards than a corsa that wasnt repaired. People know this so they wont buy CatC's for a peace of mind...

Its the same sort of thing with the springs.
