    The problem with the Tein kits is they dont drop as much as youd hope and thats the only reason why im still on the fence with them.

    They only drop 55mm in the rear and 45mm up front.

    XYZ's

    Which is about 30mm lower than Tein's kits. They claim 50mm lower than ultra low springs.

    So nice. How hard are they to adjust at home?

    Not sure about in Aussie, but in NZ you have to get them certed (engineered), so you'd need to budget another $500 right away.

    Theyre ADR approved here, so as long as they pass the minimum height (100mm), theyre fine.

    Going by their quoted specs, (55mm) I wouldve thought theyd be a little bit higher. But that looks pretty decent.

    I just have to say, that looks AWESOME!!! I even love the rims. It's not often I like white on white but this gets the James May tingle. :D

    Not too bad but your can't raise all 4 corners in an hour. Probably take more like 3 and I just measure off the bottom with a ruler to get the heights even

    Thanks mate. Tried to be a bit different but not in your face bold.

    I'm sure the guys at 888 could suggest or even fabricate a decent coilover for a Commodore lol
