    Hello all just a quick question, I pick up my car Monday and I have a couple of plans for her straight away...
    I am going to be fitting a set of h&r springs along with the scorpion decat pipes. Does anyone have these springs fitted as I was wondering what the biggest spacers I could fit without any rubbing? It has the standard wheels and tyres on the front (not the 255 & 8.5j upgrade)

    The wait is a killer but once I have her I will post some pics! Cheers

    We've done 10mm rear only and also 8mm front and 12mm rear, all depends what look you're looking for personally.

    The customer hasn't reported any but a lot will be down to drop and also weather you often have a car full.

    Simons RS3 is lowered with H&R items which I supplied and he loves it stance and no need IMO for spacers.

    It's always best to change both the springs and shocks but depending on the mileage your shocks have covered and also what drop you go for sometimes you can get away with just doing the springs.
