    thats a 50mm drop??? that doesn't look much lower than mine is now..

    I wanna go a fair bit lower on mine, Lilo said I'd need spacers though..

    Also.. 4 hours without the aid of a ramp etc isn't bad work at all..

    Did you come across any major problems??

    Dont worry steven... got a long bumpy trek ahead of me on friday and scottish highland passes arent the nicest so going to keep it like that till im back..

    Going to need to level it out too.. see just adjusting the coilovers so its sat the same on both sides will that be fine even though one side will be tighter on the spring than the other?

    Other side is 7mm lower... ill take a photo of that..

    Well mines clearing the wheel by 2mm so you probably will...

    Had home made ramps... (scaffold planks and breeze blocks... ahaha)

    Errrm only major issue was how to tighten the nut onto the piston without a set of grips but we used a rubber wrench type thing... like a chain one but with a rubber strip instead of chain and wrapped it tight round and held on for dear life whislt my mate torqued it up (ish)
