    hi people. looking for those who nhave lowered there a3 ALOT :).

    basically i have fk coilovers which are set pretty low. and i also have the adjustable drop links to be able to give clearence on the driveshaft

    should the drop links be adjusted so they push out or pull in?? i.e wound out e.t.c becuae no matter how i adjust the drivers side it still grinds against the driveshaft.

    i am having a eibach 25mm front anti roll bar fitted soon. and apparently they have a bigger loop to accomodate really low cars??

    They should be shorter, but go to far and they are going to rub anyway the bigger loop ARB should fix..

    Or if you want to go really low an LCR front ARB goes underneath and then you can slam it down to the sills :greyrs4:
