Re: Anybody using a 60/40 kit on their Cabrio? (91cabster)

That car looks badass..That's exactly the stance I want, but with a 2.0 I wonder if it will sit a little higher in front...

Well like I said I got the VR6 springs, so I'm sure if you get the 2.0 springs it will sit as it should. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

ImageShack is having a tough time loading, hopefully the pics will show. If not, I will host them elsewhere.
Rear shock has multiple grooves for spring perch, so you can adjust to taste.

That helps alot! Does the ride suck. Did you get the Cabrio specific kit like what Rapid Parts offers, or did you get a MkIII VR6 kit? Thanks...

I got the mkIII VR6 60/40 Springs - the ride is fine in combination with Bilstein Sport struts. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

The ride on the Supersport kit is soft compared to other suspensions I have used, especially coilovers (H&R, KW, and Bilstein). On the way to H2O, a friend riding next to me mentioned how the suspension did a lot of movement over bumps on the highway. Meaning, it wasn't transferring the bumps to the body. But that's also why my ET13 wheels with 195/45 tires rub badly in the rear. The rear is tucked most of the time riding on the highway.
The pictures above were taken right after installation. The suspension settled a little after a week or so.
If you are not going to use a low-offset wheel/tire setup, you shouldn't have much problem rubbing except the front fender liners when turning sharp.
