    I've got a 01 VX Commodore sitting on 16" VX S pac alloys and want 99% of my wheel gap gone and was wondering what would be the best springs to throw in and still have a legal ride?

    You won't get legal ride height and 1% wheel gap, particularly on sunken 16" stockies. Ride and handling for that situation will be balls too.

    100 or 110 is structual so dont go off your bumpers or sideskirts..

    Best bet is to cut a pirce of wood that size, cable tie it to a broom handle and shove it under the car.. this is how the cops over here do it... hits anything your pink stickered..

    In NZ we can cert it for lower than the 100mm, but you will need to talk to your transport agentcy to see if it is possible to do so over there..

    but if your going to cert, then might as well do coil overs..
