    new wheels and springs fitted

    Well took the plunge yesterday with the weather being dry and a bit milder ,had wheels fitted last week but fitted new eibach sportsline springs yesterday as they have been sat in my garage for over a week now , looked a bit like a 4x4 before i fitted the springs , would like it lower but with the roads round here it will be ok as is ,just need some weight in the boot and a good run to settle the rears in a bit


    pics with wheels before springs





    with new springs fitted









    thinking a set of 15mm hubcentric spacers on the rear to fill the arch and give it a bit more stance

    ride is slightly firmer than the standard se suspension but a lot more sure footed going into the bends with a lot less body roll ,still a very nice ride even with the 19"s on 35 profiles .

    That looks great! I was a bit worried that it would'nt sit low enough at the front as I've got sportlines to fit aswell but it looks spot on. What width are your tyres?

    Did you fit the springs yourself? I'm unsure whether to do mine myself as it looks a bit more faffy than other set ups so might get someone to do it for me.

    tyres are 255/35/19 and yes i fit the springs myself , the hardest part imo was refitting the the lower arm bolt ,the whole job took me around 4 hours start to finish ,working on the floor with 2 trolley jacks .

    Car looks great! Am planning to go for very similar rims myself... What are the specs on yours (width and offset)? Are they staggered?
