    from the ebay link above (nuts and bolts). Tried PW motorsport, left a voicemail and email, and no response, so couldn't be bothered to chase them.

    cost £120 delivered for 4 spacers and longer bolts, delivery due 1-2 days

    Thanks, that sounds quite reasonable.

    that's what I thought, will let you know what they're like when they arrive (had hoped they'd come today so could do tomorrow...)

    What are you doing ref locking nuts? I've been wondering about this problem as you probably can't use the same length bolts front and rear!

    Hmmm not sure I like the idea of potentially having my LMs stolen. I was planning on going 12mm rear and 8mm front so i guess the only solution would be to get 12mm longer locking bolts and chop 4mm off the front pair - hopefully this is easy to do with out fudging the threads!?!

    This set up will give me ET33 rear and ET37 front... Which by the sounds of it shouldn't give me any rubbing issues once lowered - please comment if you know otherwise?

    locking nuts have always given me nothing but trouble to be honest, I find they always tighten them too much at garages and can never get them off when have punctures etc....
