    got the 18's put on, and after the service next week im getting it dropped a bit.
    i got a few quotes, and WA suspensions recommends for me dropping the front about 25mm, and the rear about 45/50mm to level it out. it all sounds good, but does anyone have pics of a similar job? the measurements are just a number, and i wanna know what the finished product will look like

    Check out my pictures is the VZ section. There is a thread regarding the lowering of VZ's. I have posted before and after photos and although my measurements are slightly lower (5mm) it should give you a good idea...

    I got 20's on mine and am looking to lower it just a lil to narrow the gap between the tyre and the car, but I was wondering if Pedders would be recommended? I don't know much about cars but these guys are around Ipswich so i thought to give them a try?

    Pedders are generally considered over priced. if you provide the bits, a regular mechanic can do the job cheaper, and they won't find 10 other "problems that need to be fixed before you can take the car".
