    Default 45mm drop on 17's, what mm spacers???

    I've just ordered some Lo 45mm lowering springs for My07 cdti 120 Sri. Gonna stick with the Sri wheels for now, I've got some spacers to play with tomorrow, gonna fetch them out as far as possible.
    Once I've decided I'll get proper hubcentric spacers bought.
    I've got 4x5mm spacers to play about with and some longer bolts.
    It should give me a idea on how it'll look tomorrow.
    Can't seem to find any pics or info regarding spacing 17's out on here so fingers crossed...
    I'll keep the updates and pics coming...
    Anyone give me a rough idea on spacer sizes front and back?
    I see a lot of people on here using 25mm on rear and 10-15mm up front running 18's-19's.
    So I'm expecting something close to the above running standard 17's...

    Best bet is a plum line and measure yourself, or put a bolt on some cotton and hold it in the arch on level ground, you will get the exact mm then...

    Only thing you really need to do is flatten where the rear quarter panel meets the bumper on the inside, this can catch fully loaded if not. I've got 25mm rear, 16mm front

    Today I've fitted the new drop links up front that were pulled up on the Mot.
    While the wheel was off time to play with some universal 5mm spacers.


    10mm's worth up front...








    The wheel shop I use have got some universal 7mm's coming on stock tomorrow, so gonna try them with some longer bolts and the 45mm drop.


    While the tools were out time to try 20mm's worth on the rear...




















    Decided that 20mm might be pushing it alittle so settled for 16mm hubcentric spacers for the rear with the 45mm drop...
    If I get time tomorrow and springs arrive early on I'll be adding pics tomorrow evening.

    Not pushed them right out but should look a lot better once lowered, only 7mm up from and 16mm on the rear... It'll do and should be fine fully loaded too...
