    They will be right. I've got them on mine and they ride well. You will need to get all the tracking/cast/camber ssetup up if you are going low as it knocks it well out. A decent garage with laser setup will be able to get it to factory specs again though.

    My control arms are gettin done tommorow. You may find the drop links on the front may need doing too as mine started knocking. Its only about £20 to change both.

    well the kit is here and was deliverd from doichland in no less than one week and they look ace!

    started fitting them tonight but you guessed it the ****ing drop link thread was minced so off to but two tomoz to finish the first one that i started and the other three corners. Oh and that stinking top nut was seized also grrrwith mucho breaker barring and general swearing/banging/vice action she was free woop!

    Ive dropped her down to see how she looks and boy its low on those 19S and it hasnt even settled yet. I cant even get a driver between the arch I think rolling and some plastic trimming may be required if i decide to keep it as low as this!

    fitted the back yesterday without the height adjusting part and it is sitting quite high, deffo not the 95mm it quoted it lowers by. ive got the front wound about two inches from the bottom and it is still higher at the back!

    Could they have gave me the wrong springs?

    Also the adjuster does not fit over the stump/fixing of the lower arm whats up with that?
