    well mine is std appart from the R32 Arb so if yours is the same height then the rear adjustable bars are not needed ????

    is yours the same height as mine even though is suppose to have lowered springs on it then ???

    From memory the last time i checked after the mod - the middle of the sill to the ground approx 140mm

    cant find a bleeding tape measure right now as I am away but I will double check

    Spiker,

    Still happy with this setup? Did you / have you got adjustable tie-bars or uprated ARB's?

    havent gotten around to making any other changes but VERY happy with the fsd's - it just makes the ride less harsh and still handles well

    Ive had H&Rs,KW, now FSD/Eibach

    The H&R's were terrible- knock your fillings out ( bad roads in sydney)
    KW leaked from day one ( not much , but even the replacement ones did)
    Koni- fantastic
