    I have FK's on my Vectra and they are pretty damn good..

    What i will say i that you have the intention of winding them up and down for shows and stuff, but its not a 2 minute job to wind them up and down, and son enough you will just find a setting you like and leave them like it.

    I run mine in the Max Low position and its fine and doesnt rub, and that has been tried 4's up with no problems whatsoever.

    They are advertized as -65mm, but they go down to -75mm. I have devised a another way to go lower with them, but needs to make sure it works before announcing it to you all...

    This is how mine sits....



    Be carful when fitting them though, as its very easy to knock the front camber's out, I am having mine doen on saturday just to get them some where near close as they are well out at the moment, then when i have new tyres before Irmscher get them set up properly.

    One thing tho I will be running 235/40/18 rubber..so am guessing I wont be able to wind right down IF i want to turn the car lol

    I cant see it being a problem with that size tyres on it, Best thing to do is fit them, then have a play with ride heights until your happy.
