With this size, it doesn't scrub after the wheel arches?
Standard suspension height?

Et 47, standard height. Haven't got round to lowering it yet but when I do I will update this thread.

A couple of jobs that needed doing;

When fitting my coilovers, clean behind the scuttle, and I'm glad I left extra time to do it as mine was completely blocked up.

Also, while all the wheels were off, I took the time to try and completely clean them/wax them, but to be honest, they still look awfulImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

It was a big day for the van.

St-x coilovers fitted finally and also brought some short poly bump stops, which seem to be pretty good, actually.

I'm pretty happy with the height, although I think the rears need the centralising plate.
