    Whats the point of this? just to stop you nailing your sump when the cars lowered?

    I helped a friend do his mk4 golf recently,
    He went for 15mm items and its now very close to the bonnet!
    I recently had a "whoops" on a speed hump i miss judged, It was not the sump at all that came into contact, It was the front edge of the sub frame, so for me they seem pointless.
    I also read a thread on E38 regarding vibrations caused by these not being fitted bang in line, Although the car we did was fine i will not be doing mine,
