    Hi guys happy new year!

    I have fitted KW Variant 3 Coilovers a wile ago need a hand setting them up
    I just left them on the out the box damping

    The front struts I left them at the half way setting wasn't sure how far to wind them down
    But the back are seperate spring and dampers and are weird its got the adjuster at the base or the spring i have wound it down all the way but it doesn't seem low enough tried taking the adjuster out which will drop it by about 15mm but the spring doesn't sit properly and moves about

    Here is a pic i found so you can understand

    I haven't fitted tie are would this make a difference?
    My car at the rear seems to have allot of camber which I know mite not be the best for handling but looks great!

    It says it can lower up to 50mm but my rear doesn't seem that low how can I check how low it has gone?
    I know i can go lower at the front but don't want to unless I can sort the rear

    So was just wondering if any one has collovers on there s3 and how far they have gone?

    Regards
    George
