To help me and possibly others...show us your "stance".....I'm very close to pushing the button the some lowering springs...and possibly spacers also

I'm leaning towards Eibach Pro Kit, but am am interested to know the set up others are running..whether its stock and your happy with it...or lowering springs...or springs with spacers...I'm just trying to gather as much information as possible before taking the next step..So please post pics of your "R"...and show us your stance

I'll start...Some pics of my current set up..I have DCC and the comfort and ride is perfect in all modes...but am not a fan of the stock wheel gap

Because the Eibach Springs only offer a subtle drop of 15mm I'm wondering if I need some spacers to finish off the look I'm going for...

What are your thoughts?...Trying to get as many pics of members cars as possible..(no matter what your ride height set up)

Cheers everyone

I'm standard height and with a lowline kit I can't see myself lowering the car as I catch my front lip occasionally on big speed bumps with a passenger... I may get some small spacers for my rear wheels though as even though my new wheels have a decent ET the rears sit in a little bit more than the front imo

This looks perfect to me, How does the car ride vs stock & would you recommend this setup? 

 

Thank you Jeff. 

Its obviously slightly harsher than the standard set up but having used eibach springs on a lot of my previous cars, I think the vwr ones are better at giving a more factory like ride quality. I’m very happy with them and I’d definitely recommend them.

The drop they give is perfect, it is exactly the height I was after.

Thanks for clarifying that, you’re right, the height looks perfect, out of curiosity, are your VWR springs the newer grey coloured ones or the older blue ones

No problem. Mine are the older blue ones mate.

Great post, I am in exactly the same position. Was thinking of 20”s to fill the arches but I think you’re thinking is way better for future ride comfort [emoji106]

      Hello all, my first post on the forum. Just wondering:
       
      Which are the ‘best’ lowering springs for ride comfort? The car won’t be getting track use so I’m just looking to reduce the arch gap, without breaking my back 😂.
       
      With that in mind, I’m looking at a 20mm drop. Which spacers are best, that don’t cause rub? 
       
      Should also note;
      - I won’t be changing the dampers on the car. 
      - I’m running the 18inch Pretoria’s. As opposed to the 19’s or the Cadiz.

      Fellas, 
       
      Might be a daft question but I can't get my head round it...
       
      Im planning on changing from my 18" Cadiz alloys to some 19" Prets in the next month or so. Will the car be 1/2 an inch higher off the ground with the extra inch added to the alloys? 
       
      If thats the case, then are all 7R's who have Prets from the factory running half an inch higher than the Cadiz boys? 
       
      Or will there be no different and why?
