where is a good place to buy Ultra Lows?
I am new to modding, what do i need to achieve a camber look to the ride once is lowered?
The rear camber has nothing to do with the suspension you get.
You can buy ULs from tire rack or ECS.
Make sure to choose the JSW specific ones.
That might rub.
You want 8.5" ET 45 in order to use 225/40-R18
Love the brown Cant wait to see install pics.
Is it notched ?
I'm running ultra lows too. I feel like they can be a little stiffer. Any of you other guys with ultra lows get your frames c notched? I am constantly banging my axle on the frame on the passenger side. And how are you guys dealing with the front camber?
^ my frames notched since the first week I bought the car hahaha

not notched here but I suspect im starting to rub axle now that the springs are starting to settle down.
Camber im good with, its not annoying unless im turning hard and hit a bigger bump but you could always get a set of mkv camber plates and run those. I will probably end up getting a set eventually
would 19 x 8.5 wheel with 35 offset fit properly? or would i rub?
planning on lowering on neuspeed springs as well.
Will rub bad
17x8/9 et 35
Dan told me you were switching up from the rotoform's
Good to see more guys lowering there wagons love the brown can't wait to see some wheels on her and nice slammed white one
The art of trolling is easy. First, you must
There are two types of people in this world who don't have beards - women and children.
I want to ask it here since you guys have played with offsets:
19 by 8 with 215/35/19 and 19 by 9.5 215/35/19 on H&R race springs with spring stops (OEM stops, i was told they can be used on aftermarket springs as well).
I'm running a lot of stretch to avoid rubbing, i don't want to mess up my fenders but I want the rear dish. Do you guys think i'll be OK? I'm not going too low so hopefully no rubbing.
Ya you will be fine, be sure to trim the bump stops some. Also do the fender screw mod too.
Just wondering how my BBS wheels are going to fit. The size and specs are below, but I'm planning on going with ultra lows to drop it a little more.
262 17x8 et35
321 17 x9 et45
Right now they are getting painted, polished and re-drilled. They should be done tomorrow just need tires, and coil-overers.
Trim the stock(current) or the new ones(which dont come with most) - i cut mine down a lot with my current air set up on the gti. When I was on fk coils only trimmed the 1st notch.
Yes, I do work at ECS
Im getting a 19x8.5 ET35 wheels, and planning on lowering with koni coil overs. And after reading this thread, it means that the offset of the wheels are a bad idea? No matter what size of tires Im getting?
