      Just wondering who out there has a setup like this. I have a 2012 CC Sport.

      Also, what are my options for coilovers? I've search and found several. How are the Megan ones I see on Fleabay for $850ish?

      I had STs with 12mm spacers front and rear.
      Slight rub but not issues.

      STs run like $799.

      I like. Now the rubbing was because of your height & spacers combination? What if you were slightly higher, would you've rubbed?

      I came across this thread about ST coils while looking around. Do you have this issue?

      Going thru the suspension thread in this CC forum was the best thing I did. There are several setups like you have asked for. The question is do you want to go low for looks? Or low for performance?

      FK for MKV= Lowest
      Vmaxx for MKV= Next lowest
      H&R Ultra lows=Real low and performance
      Koni= Low and Performance


      So on and so forth

      The consensus would be:
      12mm spacer up front
      5mm spacer in the rear

      Wheels flush and no rubbing

      I had ST's...no issue.
      cwwiii recommended this setup and he has Konis....no issue either

      Nope, but it's the same color I have though.

      I care for a nice ride and not going super low. I just want to go enough and with spacers to look decent on stocks. My price range is $800-900.

      My STs made a bit of noise at first. But it is more or less gone now. Everyone once and a while on the odd cold day (LA cold so like 60F) it happens.

      But overall I am impressed. I never had rear rub issues ever, even with 2 big friends in back (and i am all the way down).

      I rub in the front most often. Now that i am running 18x9 rims I noticed rub increased slightly.

      But all my dubs have rubbed so I am used to this.

      First time I purchase spacers. 5x112...hubcentric 57.1 mm right?

      And do I just go with any brand or go with H&R. They're double the price...average for no brand ones is around $40-50 for a pair.

      Totally up to you for the brand.

      Some people have had issues with the ECS Tuning ones sticking to the wheels (should use anti-seize on them to avoid that)

      I had H&R and didn't have any issues though, and I trusted them more.

      5mm don't come in wheelcentric...only hubcentric
      On the 12mm though....you DEFINITELY want hub & wheelcentric (has the lip for the wheel)

      5mm:

      Those are gonna be similar to the ST's & not stainless

      They actually look the EXACT same as ST's except for the purple springs
