GMAX seems quite highly regarded amongst those who have fitted lowered springs and dampers, there are some topics about it in the 'handling, wheels and suspension' forum area.

I got mine from www.spring-loaded.co.uk   The shocks were Bilsteins. I can't recall who made the springs but they came direct from Germany after those I originally ordered proved unavailable. PM me if you want any more info...

I had gmax kit on my calibra with 17s then 18s and after a few months I had no inside tyre tred on any of the tyres. Camber bolts were not available at the time and I'm unsure if there available now
