    Hey guys, seen a few kits on net etc but just wondering which kits make it sit level eg -60 front -40 back or -40 front and rear? Noticed car seems to sit high a back just now so not sure of standard settings etc

    ive got 60 front/ 40 on the rear with 17's, the back is a little high but the tyres are in the arches. I would like it level all round but at the moment it will do.
