I have roughly 2mm of clearance between the collars and the wheels. I had to run 5mm spacers up front, where I hadn't run spacers on the M7 coilovers I had on before that.

I didn't cut down the bumpstops on mine yet. I may do it, because at this point I do have pretty limited travel. At the same time though, I didn't want to cut them and then blow out the shocks from a few nasty bumps I have no choice but to hit in my area. I'm still debating this.

OK, I think I'll have more clearance than that. I'm just gonna leave the bumpstops for now and see what happens when I go low.

Well it feels like i'm riding on the bumpstops right now. I think the endlinks are still too short as well, it feels like its tapping the frame a bit.

Other than that i'm happy with the setup. Its pretty comfortable and I still have ALOT of room to go lower.

Pics to come later on...

Endlinks too short? They give you endlinks because the stock ones are too long and tap the lower control arm at full droop (raised all the way up or up on jacks). Lowered, you shouldn't have any tapping even with stock length.

I'm hitting on the other side, the top of the bar to the frame rail.

I'm using the new endlinks but I think I need to make them a bit longer.

Did you get two different length threaded rod to make the endlinks? Did you use the long ones?

Sounds like you do need to lengthen them a bunch.

Yeah I used the short ones at first, put them on, looked at it, and realized it was waaaayyyy wrong, lol.

I have the longer set on there now. They only seem to make noise if I pop one tire up on a curb at a time, so only when there is alot of deflection. I'll just take care of it once I get some new camber plates.



The ****ing tire shop broke some of my center caps and didnt put back on the hub centric rings. I flipped a **** when I took the first tire off and saw the idiots didnt put it back together properly. Gotta go to NTB today and complain.

I did the same thing with the end links. It took me a little trial and error to get them to the right length.

So... where are the pics?

I still have to put my rear endlinks on.

I left my bumpstops as is, I'm pretty sure I bounce off them every so often. I was looking at them today and they do look quite tall. But whatever.

And, as I just found out, the S-Lites (17x7 et48) rubbed all over the collars when I was slammed. I had to raise the car up for the few days I had it on. My RS is fixed, back on, and not leaking now.

Not exactly hammered or anything, but i'm happy with the cars stance right now. I wanna go a little lower all the way around. I cant wait to get some camber plates and some wheel spacers. Then its on. lol.

Looking good man.

I'm not sure if I hit the bump stops or not at this point either. I need to fix the rubbing issue in the rear first and go from there.
