Yes, I've done many a search and looked through the "official suspension" post many a time. However, I don't recall seeing any VR6's on 40/40 kits, just 2.0's. The VR6's posted all seemed to have 60/40's. Is this because of the VR bearings that sit a little higher?
Does anyone have any pics of a Mk3 VR6 with 40/40 - I'm curious if the drop looks even and how much fender gap will remain, because my car is a daily driver with a 100 mile round trip commute coupled with lovely NJ roads (so I can't go too low). http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif So I'm trying to see if how a 40/40 will look in comparison to a 60/40.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

if u're talking about 40/40 weitec, they can only give a balanced drop for 2.0s. u are right about the vr6 sitting higher, so u'll need a 60/40 for MOST brands. i say this cuz my FK 35/40 (and other vortexers here) actually delivers a very balanced drop and drops as much as some 60/40 kits of other brands. it's a nice comfortable drop with about 1-1.5 finger fender gap, not enough to scrape, bust oil pans.
before

after

hope this helps.

http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif Looks really good.
I haven't seen any 50/50's on the sites I've checked out. Probably going to end up going with the Weitec 60/40.

I hope I don't take out my oil pan,etc though...
