Just helping out others.. this is what my setup looks like..
I believe my front will be fine after dropping down 2", but I will be rolling the rear once it goes down 2". I mentioned earlier that I plan on putting on 5mm spacers in the rear before the roll for an even more aggressive look. It'll probably require a tiny bit more of a roll. No serious camber or anything.

Are those 18" or 19"? Staggered or non-staggered?

Finally got my setup sorted

After months of buying, waiting, more waiting and some adjusting, my Koni yellow, H&R sport VMR setup is complete, thanks to Kevin for the advice and getting these to me in NZ.

Will be lowering soon and adding spacers in the rear.







Have you lowered this yet? I'm interested in the fit once lowered.

Those pics were taken before I lowered my car on H&R Sport Springs. I am also running a 5mm spacer in front and 12mm spacer in rear now, so my rear offset is ET23 and had to roll my fenders and shave the bumper clips. I still rub a little on the fender liner on big dips with people in the back but nothing too crazy.

Here's a recent pic. Gives you a better idea on how my car sits now.

Awesome, exactly what I was looking for. I love how it sits. I'm also lowered on H&R springs so this was super helpful.

Thanks for that Mike and thanks for the PM.

Well apparently no supplier in Canada has stock on the vmr 710. 2-4 month wait, how is this possible?

Starting to look like I will need to go with these instead, not too pleased.
