On the rear do you still have the platforms in? Or just the springs?

Update time

Not exactly everything went as planned today , first issue was i didn't have a clue how to remove the rear spring to get at the adjuster cup and remove it, just thought id be able to pull the spring and it and would come out but that didnt seem to do it

Anyway time for some pics

20140907_134948 by Jsn1995, on Flickr

wound the front all the way down

Before

20140907_134955 by Jsn1995, on Flickr

After

20140907_140926 by Jsn1995, on Flickr

and made sure the back was as low as possible with the adjusters in

20140907_142449 by Jsn1995, on Flickr

20140907_142456 by Jsn1995, on Flickr


Then i got the wheels on

20140907_172046 by Jsn1995, on Flickr

unfortunately the coilovers rub the inner wall like fuck , so the old wheels have gone on until i get some spacers which should be only be a couple days hopefully

very happy with how its looking now - next is some 110/120mm rear springs and adjusters out

I agree with Simon perfect height, for reference mate you undo the lower shock bolt and pull it down to get the spring out then the reverse to put it back together.

Looks perfect with the new wheels on though mate, just have a look for a nice sport interior and your on to a winner.

Adjusters will be like 20mm alone so will drop a fair bit - also unbolt the shocks and it will allow the axle to fall so you can pull springs out

i do like it as is but adjusters will definitely be coming out at the very least, new seats will probably be on the cards soon l wouldn't mind some Calibra leathers

Has it settled? Does sit quite well.

Slatted grille and some better pressed plates and that would be perfect to me

Looks much better! As said above, a bolt on each side for rear springs, nice and quick job!

Strange that it rubs on the coilys? Must be some wide fuckers haha, never had that problem with any of my wheels
