Not sure if it's to low for my liking

Measured it againsts my friends 182 (on standard 16"s, mines on 15") and front is 40mm lower, and the rears about 43mm of standard.

Very nice :)

Height looks spot on to me fella, any scrubbing?

Not that i'm aware of yet, i've put it like this for now and will check it over at the weekend after i've done about 50 miles.

First go at fitting the fronts had no idea how much to wind it up and when i took it of the axel stands it was silly low, must have been about 30mm off the ground.

Excellent! You managed ok then!?

Took us 3.5 hours lol

Mainly adjusting the height etc though, car seams to drive fine, obviously it needs a proper b-road test. Not sure if i'll bother with getting it all alighed.

I would do eventually, makes the difference! Once your happy with height etc!

Don't get lost...............:rasp:

Get them aligned mate.

My suspension was way out after fitting my coils, handles like its on rails after the setup!

Looks alot better, not too low either!

Awesome, perfect height for me.

I'd definitely get it aligned, after I had coilovers fitted to my last car it handled awfully until it was aligned, then it was great.

Nice work

Nice one, looks a great height. Didn't think you would go for cheapy coilovers though.

It was either these or refresh standard, bought them second hand from a member on here, so could easily get back roughly what i paid for them if I don't like them.
 

Da

Lol, mine was like that on the first attempt, the tyre was resting against the arch liner and the splitter was about 30mm above the tarmac!

Went for a proper drive, I think they rub when cornering very hard arg, so may lift the front slightly.

Looks good. You'll have to have let us know how what you think on them, how they make the car handle etc.

So far I'm very impressed. But not done many miles yet or had them set up properly.

Well a month on, can't decide, still not had them set up yet, but i have a feeling they might be to hard for the type of driving i do.

You'll get used to the stiffness. Dont you find it so much nicer to drive when your not rolling all over the place?

Thing is RS's dont really roll. Its good to have it complient, especially as the DR ;) does North Wales runs quite often, You need the suspension to iron out the imperfections to keep the car stable..........

Hmm well i dont know what a Clio Sport handles like with the standard suspension as when i bought it my 182 was on georgous Apex springs lol. So for me it rolled a bit, i then put H&R coilovers on and it cornered a lot flatter.

Suppose it depends how and where you drive as to if stiff coilovers work for you or not.
