      -FK Silverline X+ Coilovers
      -11 threads left up front I believe; all the way down in the rear with perches.
      -Rubs on passenger front fender liner when driving and it's an uneven surface/small bumps
      -Handling and ride is bar none IMO. Dampening adjust ability: full stiff.

      KW tie bars
      15mm spacers rear/6mm spacers front
      8x19" Nouvalari reps,235.35.19 Falken's
      Catches very slightly on full lock,no rubbing otherwise

      Is it just me or is it only FK's that go low on the back while still leaving the perches in??

      I am rockin StaSis Koni coilovers.
      I live in the wintery north with uber-$hitty roads so I do not have them cranked that low...
      Rears are all the way down with perches in. Fronts could go another couple inches.
      CPT control arms in lower rear
      18x8.5 Oettinger REs
      12mm spacer up front 20 mm in the rear.
      Oh, and obviously no rubbing.. and have yet to scrape on anything.. and rides great.. firmer than stock but not harsh. handles great

      Did you adjust your StaSis, or are they on the as-bought settings? You can adjust dampening you know...

      the as-bought settings were non-existant. the adjustments Stasis claims to make definitely were not there.
      I adjusted both height & dampening. Set dampening right about the middle on both front & rear

      Old car
      01TT225 qC
      STaSIS Coilovers, wound down all the way in the back, perches in, Front had plenty left, but very little rake in this setup
      full KMAC bushings
      OE 18x7.5 ET32 7 Spoke wheels
      15mm front, 20mm rear spacers
      OUTSTANDING ride quality on medium firmness front and rear, i miss it alot..
      on 'factory' settings, it was the lame..


      New Car
      01TT225qR
      KW VII Coilovers wound all the way down in the rear, perches in, front has more rake but still has several inches left.
      full KMAC camber correction
      18x8.5 BBS LM ET25
      Spacers? no thanks.
      Ride quality: set to middle in the front, no idea in the back. it's considerably harsher than the STaSIS setup, handles outstanding though, i mean, incredibly well. much more dynamic and resonsive; much more track than the STaSIS kit. If i could do it all again, if i had more time to play with both cars, i think i would have swapped the suspensions... not complaining though, just gotta avoid them manhole covers

      negative.
      those were the old style forge tips.. the rims of the tips loved to go black all the time, so it always looked like there wasn't an exhaust on the car. haha.
      the outsides of the tips are polished alum, they reflect the cars black valence to appear black in this image. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      H&R coils
      perches out in the rear
      1" left in the front

      KW isn't terribly comfy, i'll post my winter setup impressions, going to lower dampening and switch to 17s on 45 or 50 profile tires...
