    Purchased coilovers

    Just bought a set of fk street coilovers off eBay and should have them Tuesday. Am I still right in thinking that I can drop a max 45mm before I need different drop links? They start off 35 lower. Anybody had much luck with these coilovers? Cheers.... Oh and I'm running 225/45/18s front and back...

    Ok cheers mate. I'm going to pick up some adjustable drop links as I wanna get the arches to sit just above the tyre. Any clue as to how much I need to wind the coilovers to start with?

    Ive gone about 40mm i reckon, maybe more and I've not had to get adjustable drop links, you will need adjustable tie bars for the rear to sort the camber out.
    Regarding how far to wind the coilovers to start with, I reckon the fronts about 20mm from the bottom of the thread and then go from there, not sure about the rears, just put do about the same and go from there.
