Zr dampers with R25 lowering springs?

as the title says, would this work and how much of a drop would I get


Zr dampers with R25 40mm lowering springs
Zr dampers with R25 60mm lowering springs


Or is it best to go for Zr dampers with 30mm lowering springs?


Note, I want to lower the car but also still get through mud and crap down a farm lane!

Why not just throw on some Xpower Springs instead, if memory serves the
combined drop with ZR 160 springs was 35mm.

Probably best not to lower at all then if you want to get through mud etc, just put on ZR dampers and stock springs and you'll have a reasonable drop from what you have now on your 25

This will make no difference to the ride height at all. The damper bodies on the R25 and MG are the same, it is the spring that lowers the ride height on the MG.
