    hi john, sorry that its not answering your question but could you post a pic of your car with the coilovers on? did you have to change anything else to get the camber correct?

    No worries .This is with ap coilovers with the rear adjusters out and only the spring in and it still not low enough. You have to fit adjustable tie arms when lowering over 25mm i believe. hope this helps .[​IMG]

    I've got AP's and mine was that height at the back before I removed the adjusters.
    Think the only way to get it even lower is to get different springs.

    Right iv ordered two FK silverline rear springs so hopefully they will sort out the problem .
    If anyone else would like to order some the part number is:
    FK88HA/4

    24€ each spring and 14,49€ p+p

    Which worked out £52 pounds all in. Just phone 004971913275180.

    Pm 'supreme' on here. He has ap's and we sent his rear springs away to be shortened by 15mm. The car runs only these springs with no adjusters, it's very low.
