You said stock as a rock and I thought, "okay, you can stay."

Then AC Schnitzer and I thought, "oh no, it's too late."

You've been reading and you still want to stay? You really should read more.

Never click on a link from Griffin...ever...don't. DO NOT. If you're old enough to see it, you will. There are things on the web you don't want to know about....

I managed to pick up a set with tyres for $600!! Tyres on fronts are brand new and rears have plenty of tread on them minimal camber wear. rears are 235's and fronts 215's. Stretched with a nice lip shown!!

I did at one stage (for about a week). Was running BC ER's and sitting 75mm of the road at the lowest point. But a trip to tassie meant back to stock height. A friend offered to raise the coil overs, I said sure. He broke all of them forgetting to undo the reservoir clamps.

Welcome. Style 95's are great. I assume you're planning on lowering it once the wheels are on? wow 235 on an 11!

I sure will be!! Have some other bills (major dental work) that need attention first. Will be cambering the rear as well as the front.
