    It says on the ad 30-100mm front and 30-60mm rear but it does also say 30-60mm front. They are well priced and if i didnt have coilovers already i would get them. Just assume you can lower 60mm

    if your on a budget then they are one of the best kits you can get. FK have a good name and the ride quality of the Street Kit shouldnt break your back.

    If you can stretch I would highly rcommend the FK Highsports, they lower down to 100mm and have higher quality components but you do pay a lot more for them

    I recently fitted these on my 53plate sri and im very happy with them, the front can be lowed approx 100mm which I found more than enough! Speed bumps are now to be feared! But they are a good product, ride is firm yet quite comfortable and it now handles alot better. I'd recomend them again.

    Cheers for all the info. I'm strongly considering ordering these on pay day. But if anyone has pics of the result I could expect it would be appreciated

    on another note, just checked venom motorsport who are an FK dealer, they say you can expect upto a 100mm drop on both the front and rears! result!

    just make sure you grease the coilovers up every month or so to stop them seizing!

    Here's my GSi fitted with the AK coilovers with photos before and after, if you do go for them just be aware there is mixed reviews with these.
    Some people say they are fine but like me there are people that have twanging from the front and knocking from the rear, mine should be coming off at the weekend as i can't put up with the noises anymore and being replaced with the standard shocks and some PI 45mm springs.

    I'm very interested in them as well,they look a great deal to be honest,so I googled them,(AK FK Coilovers),and some of the posts were very favourable,especially those on an Audi forum.That can't be bad,so I think I will be putting an order in.FELIXX.
