    206 lowering?

    I have an axle in my hut to replace my knackered one which hopefully will happen this weekend. Ive been trying to make head and tails of the lowering guides and to me it looks like you can just slide off the trailing arm and move it round a couple splines would this be possible could someone very kindly explain how to actually do it if that is not a good way to do it.

    tThat's how it's done, but before you do it remove the shock absorbers (both wheels off the ground obviously), measure the distance from the axle stub to the top of the wheelarch and move the trailing arm upwards by the same amount. think it'll go in steps of about 3 cm though...
    cubic inches, there's no substitute...

    So it would be better to fit the axle first then try lowering it?

    I guess it would be the same as the 306? I think its the same on the Picasso as well:

    yes, definitely mate up the main beam before removing the trailing arms for lowering. ideally you'd even mount everything and do the lowering the next weekend, as you don't know if it has been lowered yet...
