Coilovers

Postby marshey » Tue Feb 07, 2012 8:09 pm

Im looking to order some coilovers this week and was wondering how low people gone on them and if they any problems with them.
Driveshaft or anti-rollbar rubbing?
Problems fitting?
Any advice will be very helpful thanks.

They are either 35 or 38. Can't remember exactly, but I'm leaning more towards 38.
