    Last night Shaun and I started with the coilovers, had a few hiccups cause lack of tools but worked around it, 3 quick snaps...

    Will wash and snap some more pictures today of how she sits... Once the suspension settles should have another 10-15mm lower and then I can raise it until I change wheels :D!

    Another update, I mananged to get a set of Helios and 30mm adapters for a decent price, tyre profile at the rear is 235/35/19 and front is 225/35/19... Would like the rear to change as its bugging me somewhat. Still deciding if the wheels suit or not :think:, but some pics for anyone that would like to see how helios sit on a 8L chassis.
