    where to pick up a few parts?

    im looking for 20mm spacers for the rear wheels on my car but theres so many different brands can any one recommend any to me?

    also i ahave lowered my car 40mm all round, now the back end looks low enuth but the fornt is sitting way too high is there anyway i can get just 2 60mm front lowering springs too bring it down a bit more?

    regards in advance

    these are the ones i had

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/20MM-Hubcentri...item43a05d485c

    Hubcentric is the way forward!!! No need for longer bolts etc


    I'll be fitting another set in the next few months too.....


    cut a coil or two off the fronts - done! They'll probs snap at some point anyway so may as well do it now
