Aaron: Nah, didn't really want to. I'm pretty happy the way it is. I hate bottoming out and hitting speed humps and scraping driveways. <_< I like to keep my bodykit as scratch free as possible. ;) And the fact that i can't afford it either..hahaha :lol: ....so nah....i haven't lowered the "Golf Ball". :(

Is someone able to tell me what the product code is for the low King Springs for the Stivo. I just called Autobarn for a price and the guy said that they do not manufacture a spring suitable. I know people have them so I would appreciate the code if anyone knows it.

He wouldn't quote me cause he doesn't think that they can get them. But if I know the code then they should just be able to order them in. Autobarn are offering 10% off the Kings at the mo.

I think the drop is 35mm.

Just wanted to know...

what is the CORRECT specifications to go with.

stock: 16x6 195/55/16

new rims: 17x7 215/45/17

I think it has put my speedo out...but not 100% sure. i lined the wheels up and they seem the same size...

is it still the same overall rolling diametre?

what should be correct dimensions??? :blink:

I think that 215/40/17 will bring you closer to the correct speedo reading. Though I don't think that it'll really make that much of a difference.
