Best do the back end too though!
No, you'd have to space it so far to clear it would be ridiculous!......it won't work. It's the tyres' height not it's width that's the problem.

24v V6s don't have this problem.....only TSs.

Thanks for your advice.
Hah - me and my big mouth - Alfashops delivery of my springs and shocks got sent to a combination of my delivery address and my billing address!
I ended up on a mercy dash to collect them from an unknown distant neighbour, in time for my allotted garage slot (20 miles away) to get them fitted! They blamed the courier but who gave the courier the address????

Anyway, the back end feel much tauter and less bouncy now, although the ride height is several cm's higher. I am told this should settle down a little as the springs find their level?? The ridiculous negative rear camber is now restored back to factory settings and after a laser alignment, car is much lighter and sweeter to steer.
