Re: suspension height

In my attachment picture the height looks perfect for me IMO and I do drive my car without rear passengers more often than not, however when my grandchildren want to ride in it with the roof down is when my rubbing occurs.
PS. I know I have winter tyres :o

Re: E-bay Scammers

These scammers make me so annoyed and I have reported so many of these adverts to ebay and yet they still keep appearing.
It is about time that Ebay bought in tighter measures to deal with these horrible people.

Re: suspension height

Ah yes my old springs had the rubbers and the lowering blocks were alloy so its a case of reducing the block which sounds like reverting back to original. I always thought this looks too high Imo.
