I've had the tein super streets fitted now and had a little play with the fronts.
The car takes seed bumps a lot better now than it did on direnza lowering springs.
The question is should I go lower? :-k I think the back needs lowering a little more. What do u think chaps?

I wouldn't. You will already be very close to the bump stops, so if you want predictable handling you should keep a "sensible" amount of suspension travel.
