I've just fitted my VMaxx ones and the backs I had to adjust all the way down to get a decent ride height and to avoid any rubbing the front adjuster was screwed up, showing 19 threads. The front is still a bit lower than the back, but I'm assuming the back will settle a bit lower. Hope that's of some help mate.

my rear was high too, i put fronts on showing 15 threads, was way too low, ended up winding plate up sp 65mm of thread was showing from base plate, has lost its dragster look now.

I put my backs in the way VMaxx said to do it and ended up with a 6inch gap between the top of my wheel and the arch :oops: Turns out they were upside down. I also took the OEM rubber out from the top of the backs to get a bit lower. Happy with the ride height I've got now though.

so which way round did you fit your rear springs? i have the small coil at the top with the adjuster sat in there, still have the top rubber in, did think about removing it.

The way you've done them is the right way mate and the way I changed mine to. VMaxx said to put the adjuster on the bottom :? . I had to take the rubber out to get low enough.

just been looking at before and after pics, noticeably different at the rear, think i may have to drop the front a tad.

Anyone that has taken the rubber out from the top & willing to pop them in an envelope to me would be much appreciated! I want to put them back in on mine (mines a tad too low at the back, but dont have those rubber mats anymore [smiley=bigcry.gif] ).

PM please if you are willing :p

Ive experimented LOADS!

I have FK coilovers and run rear low as she goes with adjusters in and the front wuth 24 threads showing from bottem. I run 1.55 neg camber rear and neg 1.1 front. Seems great for a fast road setup.

Strange that as they are made in different countries; I wonder whether they sent them to you as an alternative to the Jamex b/c they had no stock or something?

kentish, could not believe it when you posted the pics of your set, they are exactly the same as the jamex.
hardest bit on the front is getting the bottom of the old shock to release, other than that very straightforward.
Large plastic disc sits on bottom,large end of spring sits on that then adjuster fits into top of spring with washer inbetween it and spring.
will take pics later, when i am adjusting the fronts and removing the spacers on rear.
