    Default Suspension Set Up Thread. What People Are Running With.?

    I just thought it would have been helpful (If not already done) for people looking to change their suspension set up. You could even post a side view of your car as a visual reference to the suspension set up on what your car is running.
    Something like this:

    2.2DTI Preface Signum Design.
    Eibach pro kit E10-65-011-01-22 On Design shocks.
    Axel weights of 1105 front and 1080 rear
    Measurement from center of wheel to wheel arch = Front 340mm/ Rear 345mm
    Ride quality is firm and very smooth. Running on.235/40/18
    Could this become a sticky?

    19 inch tsw warriors
    235/35/19 tyres
    - 40mm springs i believe ( so i was told from seller )

    quite a firm ride for urban potholed roads but good on the faster roads



    more to come via whiteline arb and polybushes - possibly a rare strut brace
    possibly coilovers as 2 of shocks a bit damp and creaky lol

    Would it be possible to give the measurement from the center of your wheel to your wheel arch? Mine measures 340mm front and 345mm rear

    Now that looks low

    What engine do you have? What variation/model? (Sri, Design, Elite,Gsi etc).
    Whats the Axel weights and measurement from the center of your wheel to the wheel arch?
    The more info gathered the more help it will be to other members.
    The OP has the info required. Its a lot of info I know, but not too difficult to get a hold of.

    Very smart looking motor mate.

    Thanks for your input

    Nice drop mate

    A bit shy on the info though
    I'm after creating a thread that can help others choose what drop/setup they would like without having to fork out £££ getting the parts then fitting them. Then thinking I wish I went lower or I think I might of went to low!

    The info needed is:

    Engine and car Make/Model: 2.2DTI Preface Signum Design.

    Suspension setup: Eibach pro kit E10-65-011-01-22 On Design shocks.

    Axel weights: 1105 front and 1080 rear

    Measurement: (from center of wheel to wheel arch) = Front 340mm/ Rear 345mm

    Ride quality: Firm and very smooth.

    Tyre's Running on 235/40/18.

    Cheers
