Welcome dude thats the same reason i got a caddy working on mine at the moment as its a non runner. I race downhill in the Scottish series on a kona stab supreme. Didnt realise how many cyclists have caddys theres a good few of us on here now :thumbs_up

To lower it you will need to flip the axle (do some searches as there is soo much info on here) plus you will need to try someone like Venom to sell you just the front coilovers.

PM Al to get an exchange axle (I know he has one in stock as its in my workshop) I think this one doesnt have the compensator bracket on it (there are two types!)
