    that does look low on 16's but have seen lower are the drop links new or reused could have had play in the drop links already then when lowered just point it out even more due to the strain on the drop links beeing lower

    The rubber part on drop links becomes very soft after a while. When I replaced my drop links a few months back I couldn't believe how soft the old 9 year old ones were.

    If it's anything like the Leon, you need to buy shorter drop links too.

    I had this same issue, and used spacer bushes in between the ARB, thread and the droplink to make it sit perpendicular as opposed to that angle. I've had them on for at least 3 months and had no issues or play in them at all (and mine even lower now).

    Only thing I have to worry about is the chassis knocking on the ARB now.

    Hope this helps.
