They've been installed on xis before, the spindle on the xi sits higher than the i, so you lose a bit of the drop. Similar to e30 i owners using ix struts to get more drop and maintain travel. Kinda wondered why the i guys here never considered that.

Here is my XI using RWD H&R Race springs/SP Lowering perches on koni yellows.

This picture doesn't do it justice, I have to take more, the front tucks a decent amount. The only issue is the strut would bottom out so I had to remove the front SP lowering perches.

The strut length is the issue for us XI guys, there are a few places that are readily available with shortening the Koni's roughly 2"....1" from the overall body and 1" down on the actual shaft. This process will cost roughtly $300-$450 shipped.

That is what I am about to do to get my XI pretty low up front while keeping shock travel intact. It really is a shame we don't have a coil-over out just yet that'll allow us to get pretty low like the RWD guys.

Oh well, I already have a custom slip-over Swift coilspring set-up ready to go, I just need to get the struts shortened which I believe TCKline sells them shortened already by Koni. I just already have my struts and don't want to go through the hassle of having to sell them, buy new etc etc.
