    Advice/General Consensus Please - Spacers

    Evening all

    Read various threads on here recently and H&R hub-centric seems to be the way to go but what size?

    I've got standard s-line suspension and wheels with no plans to change either.

    Also should front and back be the same size/width or should I go wider at the back?

    10mm front and 15mm rear seems to be a nice set up

    as I cant be arsed to remove the screw / modify the rear wheel liner and as I tend to travel on lots of bumpy roads then I went for 10 mm all round

    I stuck with 10mm alround for the same reasons, basically I knew there would be no rubbing.
    Having seen jonnyc's car I can safely say that the 15mm on the back does look better!

    My 3.2 sport 54 plate.

    Fitted Eibach pro kit springs, which is 20-25 lower than my original sport springs.

    18" S3 wheels.

    H&R spacers 10mm front and 15mm rear spacers (kit from TT Shop has everything you need in one).

    Before - there's a slight shadow so it's not as clear as I'd hoped.




    After - It's as low as I wanted to go and no rubbing issues even on bumpy roads

    Thanks for the pics mechanic.

    Anyone know how much lower the standard s-line suspension is compared to the sport? Just trying to gauge where mechanics sits in comparison.

    think it is 10mm with the s3 being a further 10mm lower. the sport will be 15mm lower than the standard car.

    Sport is 15mm lower than standard
    S line is 25mm
    S3 is 35mm

    So the eibach springs take it to between S line ans S3 and once settled are closer to S3 height.

    K-dash did you do maths at school??
