evening all.

My cars just come back from being lowered and the front is to low. It scrubs quite a bit.

is there anyway of stopping this??

a friend of mine suggested removing the inner archs is this a good idea??? is there anyway of lifting it slightly to stop it??

You are not going to be able to raise it.

What springs have you used and which engined Coupe is it?

not a coupe. need to change my car details on here.


its a 96 42o gsi. the springs are apex or gmax but the front seems a lot lower than the back.

Is it a good idea to take the inner arches out. ive been told it will be ok if i take them out and tar the inner arches??????

Humans have the capacity for infinite stupidity...

Hmm, think I'll add that to my sig...

I wouldn't put it passed some muppet to have re-ordered the wrong springs

If they are 35mm lowering springs then they shouldn't rub really. Where exactly on the arch liners are they rubbing, is it the top of the liner or at the edges.

the edges. Im gonna take some photos tom and post them so you can see.

i didnt think 35-40 mm would lower it this much.

How much is it for the arches to be roled??? again is this a good idea??

It shouldn't really be scrubbing. What size wheels have you got fitted? :)

Rolling the arches is a possibe way to sort it, you shouldn't really be paying more than about £70 - £80 to have 2 arches rolled.

I had 40mm lowering springs on my 400 and there was no scrubbing at all. Next to no room between the wheel and the arch though.

Mine were Boge ones and top quality kit.
