    spacers will come (going for 8mm rear and 5 mm front),just think it should be a little lower,will give it over the weekend to settle,may gain another 5mm once settled

    I think it looks really good at the moment and as you say, you may get another 5mm when they settle. Very smart indeedy! :wub: xx

    That looks like its at s-line height. Slightly higher maybe!

    You sure they actually fitted the coilovers? ;)

    I'd go a lot lower personally. Down to the tyre.

    Theres no way that's S line height on a 3.2....I can vouch for that.

    Looks about right to me Mark, any lower and there may be the occasional rubbing

    From the photo it looks like s-line height to me. Or there abouts.
    Doesn't look "lowered" at all.

    Very useful shot from the same angle. :ninja:

    I'm not going to debate whether it's exactly the same as s-line height or not. The point is it needs to be lowered more.

    It does need to go down a bit more IMO , I have a pic somewhere of my car on standard s-line suspension to compare but I'm away from home tonight so will do it tomorrow ;)

    this is standard 3.2 s line height, from a similar angle. It does look slightly lower, and like you say it should settle too.

    Still too much arch gap Mark. Remember, the arches need not allow you to smuggle immigrants in!

    But cleaner with a bigger engine. :)

    OP, drop it more. It does not seem lowered and/or low enough.

    Mines getting the works tomorrow, it hasn't been washed in over a month. And for the o.p, if you haven't had to remove 'The' screw, it's too high!
