    thanks mate, much appreciated! I love how it looks now just still trying to decide wether i can live with it this low on a daily basis, also got some 19's to put it on which should raise it slightly but cannot afford tyres at the minute haha

    Don't think there's alot you can do to stop catching, your wheels aren't that wide and looking at the pics the ET is high too as they look tooled really close the car (as in not wide)

    Looks far too low at the front, if you ask me - it must make 3-pointers (or anything that requires full-lock) a pain in the backside!

    And I'm not even going to start on speedbumps.

    ...But hey, each to their own!

    haha i reckon the front the car would hit the deck before they're wound right the way down, even when the above pics there was still loads of thread left, the back are as far down as they'll go without the adjusters in

    btw, what 19"s you got?
