    I went for this one when I got mine, have had it fitted since February with no problems so far. Also worth putting on polyurethane bushes rather than rubber ones.

    Mine used to be similar height to this on my FR Petrol. NEVER had any arb knocking.

    Excuse the dirt:

    Never hit the sump.

    On my FR+ that I have now, the sump sits a LOT lower so lowering that much would concern me.

    Your right that the sub frame is lower but it is behind the sump so the sump is the first to get hit I have managed 3 in a month im looking into the shallow sump and engine spacers now

    Trust me, it's no good being this low the shocks burst, all of them and it's now just riding on springs, no shock at all it sucks, too bumpy, harsh as anything.

    But I'm running fk street coilies and I'm not sure of the size of my wheels, (will go check now ) bought them second hand off a lad that had them on his car, with the forge 5mm spacers. It looked spot on when I first done it, if it was a tad bit higher I would have loved it as I can't get any one in the back, this is my daily driver and family car.
