    Hi there, I've recently fitted some coilovers and loving new feel and height but I'm still getting roll on the front end which in turn is causing the arches to rub on my tyres, someone suggested replacing the drop links on the anti roll for some shorter ones and another friend suggested changing the top mounts, neither of which I've had experience with, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
    thanks

    i use 205/40/17s up front with 15mm spacers and slammed 110mm up front and dont rub at all,i found it did on 215/45s though even with 6mm spacers.

    what offset does the wheels have and how low you are and have you replaced any droplinks,bushes etc and tyre pressure i take it you have checked

    PICS ALSO IF POSSIBLE

    Not entirely sure on offset, they're a set of MOMO 5 spokes I got off the bay, haven't replaced and bushes or links atm and tyre pressures are running at 32psi, will post some pics in a bit, as you'll see it#s not that low still

    i would start with the front droplinks first and go from there buddy,did you need a spacer up front to clear the coilovers also?

    are the tyres directional ones and no incorrect tyre pressures one side(sounds silly but makes a real difference)and tracking is ok?

    awesome, will give it a look, surprisingly no spacers were needed (read that would need so bought and now have em sat in a cupboard), tyres are right direction and tracking is bang on, may try an extra psi in tyres for now too, currently waiting till can afford full anti-roll kit as work for a "helpful" company that doesn't pay "the extra mile"
    Gotta swap out drivers side hub assembly too as sheared a bolt when installing coilies and not overly confident in running without it :s

    Any recommendation on decent links btw? I read up that the JOM ones are a bit pony and the rest all look fairly similar
