    As above got around 60mm drop all round is it worth taking 60mm off the drop links to compensate, as the roll bars will be working in a different position...no issues just wondered..:think:

    I believe that the S3/LCR/R32 from suspension setup lends itself quite well to a drop unlike the A3/LC/Golf and will cause no issues for the ARB in its new position. Having said this, since dropping mine I am pretty sure that it has taken its toll on the stock ARB bushes and they are now creaking, time for bigger ARB and polybushes I think. I can't say whether this is a coincidence as the bushes are getting on a little anyway.

    The only problem with lowing a car the wish bones work at a different angle and throws the roll centre out
