Thanks for the info man!

V1's here, and they drop close to 3", or let's just say they drop you low enough to where it's not driveable. (I'm yet to see the bottom of my threads)

I'm wondering if maybe they redesigned them or something. Mine are old, maybe the new ones are only 2" drop?

I'll have to snap a pic of mine.

With my megans.....and with 205/50 tires i guess.....you could come pretty damn close to laying frame if adjusted all the way down.

still about an .5-1 inch of thread left when this pic was taken

Rally, Konky, Ray, Kal... Is the ride bumpy or bouncy at all in your cars? Konky do your's have built in camber plates? I looked at KW's site and it didn't look like it...

yeah not really bouncy, alittle now since they're all the way up for winter, but more so bumpy. I'll let you take it for a spin if you want down at the dragon.

and no built in camber plates for the KW's

Thanks guys!

Maybe so man. You can drive mine to see if you want a pulley.

Which plates did you use?

no, should I have issues?

(It's weird, cause when I was in the VW scene, camberplates wern't talked about much.)
