    I've got some Eibach 12mm and 8mm spacers to be fitted and it only just occurred to me that I might need some longer bolts.

    Do I? If so, where's best to buy them from?

    Cheers :)

    You will need bolts 12mm longer and 8mm longer.

    One long bolt goes though the wheel and spacer, 5 per wheel before anyone says anything lol

    Standard bolts are 28mm long, so you can do the maths for longer ones :) Dont forget youll need longer lock nuts too!

    Thanks for that. D0 you know if I need 17mm or 19mm head? I only ask so that it fits the standard wheel brace in the boot.
