The new stance

Hey guys I've got my eibach pro kit on with my spacers and have taken a few pics of the stance. The back is perfect but I would have liked the fronts a little lower to be fair maybe by 10mm. Actually much lower and the front would scrape on speed bumps. I know intrax sit 5mm lower than this kit. I have got 12mm spacers on the rear and 15mm on the front but think 18mm would look better. It's not been cleaned so don't pull me on that haha.

Looks smart mate. Oem with more muscle! As you said another 5mm on the front but its only you that would ever notice.

Don't you scrape on 15s at the front already? ( on lock?)

Can you put the eibach kit on if you've got a warranty?

No pal no rubbing. I did have grinding coming from the back but was the diff oil issue which has been sorted under warranty.

nope nothing pal. Just fitted springs and bolted on spacers with no issues.12mm is the limit for the rear though. Think I could squeeze 18 on the front. Might give it a try one day
