Mainly to the group buy people or anyone who has had them fitted

I got round to fitting mine at the weekend and got the fronts on the lowest setting but still looks a bit high, I know ill have to leave them to settle but did anyone measure before and after say a few weeks after they have and did they go down by much?

Cheers

P.S. car handles like a dream with them on and is such a better car to drive compared to the lowtecs

I was in the group buy mate. I had exactly the same problem when I first stuck mine on. I would say they have lowered by 10mm since they have been fitted, and they're not wound right down. If your still not happy with the height take the adjusters out mate.

Hope that helps

Ill be more than happy with the height if it drops another 10mm they have only been on a few days so gonna give it a few weeks then adjust again as back is 5mm higher than the front so gonna have to address that but may as well wait till they settle, I definitely won't be taking adjusters out I think I'd rather have handling over looks plus when the porka brakes go on I need to go out another 5mm on front so height will be just right

But very impressed with them and I won't be changing them to KW's that would mean I'd be on my third set of coilovers lol

Just need some H&R arbs on and it'll be so tight

Yeah they tend to settle 5-10mm this can take up to 1000-2000 miles to properly settle


Let us know when you need some H&R bars
will get you sorted!

I had the same issue. I wound my fronts down to the lowest and thought they were too high. But they have settled by around 8mm I think.

Rear looks balanced with a full tank, but there are a approx 3 more mm i could adjust down I think if needed.
