    Happy new year guys and gals

    Fitting was quite easy apart from the fact i had to cut the drop links off at the front.

    So far i cant complain only had them on for 2 days, but the ride is as expected firm, but they are coilovers so that is to be expected.

    I got mine from Amazon for £170 delivered.

    To be honest its all personal preference i only got them as i had a snapped spring and dead front shocks and it was far cheaper all in.

    I put the backs at the highest setting so i assume around 30mm and the fronts are a quarter of the way down, so that it looks level
