Well I'm halfway there! Got the rear springs in (they will have to come back out as the bump stops were missing!) Took the car for a quick drive around the block and put a full tank of fuel in it. The rear has come down approximately 20mm with the new springs, I was hoping for maybe 30mm but it looks near perfect. I absolutely love how the car looks now! Tomorrow I'll go for another drive and set the ride height, I'm guessing it's around rs height in the rear. Thanks for everyone's help so far

Ha! I thought that red bit was just part of the dust cover! Just preparing a list for my next parts order. Thanks!

Nice improvement in ride height Dingo, looking good!

I’m running the same springs and shock combo and I’m very happy with them.

Just finished installing the springs. Spent the afternoon setting the rideheight and have achieved rs height all round Just wanto confirm, in Adrian's book it says 218 for the rear but I read elsewhere its 223. Probably trivial anyway.
