Hi mate and thanks for the compliment. I got the ultra low kit. It has 6 holes on the rear hangers. The lowest setting on the hanger makes the van higher and vice versa. I'm currently only on the 3rd hole up from the bottom so have a further 3 holes of lowness if that makes sense? I'll upload a pic :)
Awesome, good range of adjustment left for you either up or down there.. appreciate the picture cause it's much easier to get an idea of what is/isn't possible. 8)

No problem at all :) I'm actually quite surprised on the ride at the moment. It's really not harsh at all, feels like a normal car hence I'm willing to go down a bit further. Don't get me wrong, you have to take it easy on speed bumps but so far i've had no bangs, knocks or bottoming out. I live in a rural area too, the roads are bad! What suspension kit are you looking at?

Unsure yet, will likely be the Darkside Rear Kit and possibly BC fronts? ST fronts? so that I can get it riding nice and level with matching arch gaps front and rear... and I'll sling on some uprated rear shocks too, although unsure what is available for the rear aside from seeing the Gaz kit on here.

Did quite a bit of research into this stuff when i got my Caddy. The ST seemed like great value at first and indeed many people are happy with it, some of the downsides of the kit from what i have read is this... most people expected lower settings. The kit does come with the shackle kit and rear shortened struts but doesn't centralise your rear wheels. Apart from this i know the kit is good quality but it wasn't for me. I think you'd be genuinely surprised on the comfy-ness of my current set up at the moment. I would highly recommend it. I can't compare it to other caddy set up's but did own a Seat Leon Cupra R for 13 years. Originally I bought a cheap coilover kit for it. It lasted less than 6 months. The ride was very harsh. I upgraded to a H&R coilover set up and they have been on the car since the first cheap set failed, no problems... ever. Morel of my boring story is, spend a bit more, do it once...right ;)

Thanks Lewi_grf :)

Managed to trim and re-fit my rear arch liners yesterday. Also de-tarred the van (who buys a white van... honestly!) ready to stoneguard wrap the front bumper / bonnet and fit my sideskirts Monday. Got up early today so I could finish work early and crack on.
Lo and behold it started pi$$ing it down about 10 minutes before I finished. Big fat meh!
Maybe tomorrow!

It does seem a bit excessive but that whole section had rub marks on it. Admittedly, when first lowering the van I was on the second to last hole on the hanger which was far too low, perhaps the rub marks were from then? Thought I’d take no chances. They look nice in though, you can’t tell they’ve been butchered ;)

Why thank you sir, plus I’ve increased the rear airflow and downforce Image🤣
Must be at least a 0.38bhp increase 🤪
