    My car is completely standard atm , but both front shocks have been leaking and its due its mot next month..
    I have decided to get coilovers for the car and new wheels (BBS RC090). I plan on getting it through its mot first then buy the alloys.

    I have found a cheap set of JOM coilovers (not bothered about comfort, just want it low) which i will be getting but im unsure if I will need spacers and if so what size?

    My current wheels are 205/60/15.. Any advice/help would be much appreciated!,

    cheers, B90GAV

    sweet mate spacers make a car look better anyway so just get some 15mm and it will improve looks still! dont forget longer bolts aswell tho!

    dependant on space i was thinking 10mm front and 15mm rear, but it all depends on how it sits first.. yeah i'll need to buy some longer bolts aswell, im looking to get some camber on the rear!
