The lipped side is just under an inch and a half, the opposite side is just over an inch, and they are about 3/4 an inch tall.

I'm guseesing poly bushes for most of the suspension components?

Went down to see Ben at Emperor Performance yesterday to get the HSDs fitted!

On the Ramps:




Old suspension:



New Shiney Coilovers:



Took her outside to see how she sits:




It's a nice drop, a lot more aggressive. Just need to wait for them to settle, then can get it all set up properly!

When I got home, it was still hot and sunny, so I decided to do a couple of other small jobs. I changed the stubby aerial for an OEM one (looks a lot better) and got rid of that God-awful air horn and replaced with standard OEM one. I had to mount them slightly differently as the intercooler was taking up all the room!
One this was done I gave her a wash and called it a day. Then today I decided to give her a really good clean! Broke out the clay bar and cleaned up the paint work, then polished and waxed! The paint now looks like glass! Awesome result!









Next on the list, some 20mm spacers for the front wheels, then get the suspension set up! Also going to paint the calipers I think.

I have 30mm spacers on the back already, so when the fronts come out a bit it should even out!

The air horn I threw, it sounded gay as fark lol. Just reverse the OEM ones and mount higher up, that's what most people do when they fit an aftermarket FMIC.

Haha, and sorry mate, unless it's a car I recognise or one that looks awesome, OR has a hot girl in there then I really don't notice it! haha!
