i had a cav gls lowered 60mm with gmax, i had no probs getting my 17's under the arches.

i then had a cav turbo lowered 25mm with koni's same wheels and tyres as above,

BUT

the cav turbo wheels rub on the front arches why is this they are suppose to be better than gmax kits.

May have something to do with the way the turbo lowers with irs.


Koni's knock the **** out of Gmax mucker,in my opinion there's no comparison.

Is the turbo not lower than the GLS to start with??? so the tubbie will sit lower even though you've intorduced a smaller drop on paper!

i do not know if it does. but i lowered the turbo by only 25mm surely the gmax lowered by 60mm is going to sit lower or the same hieght.

In answer to your thread question. Yes, without a doubt, Koni shocks are the dogs, however i matched mine with Eibach springs as i found the siuppplied RoC springs too low for my TXB.

I would of gone with that. Koni sent you the wrong springs.? What colour are they? Koni dont actually make springs, only shocks, their spring suppliers are RoC. Theres another spring they match with their shocks too, but i cant remember the name atm.
