I think, im sure he'll correct me if im wrong :)

Its cut springs on the front, (almost on the bumpstops iirc) and the rears on 2" blocks. And the tyres were 185/60/13 at that time :D

Hope this helps, Thomas........................

You and Wiganer should have a chat about the oil return, it doesn't seem epically simple! Might be worth a chat with Foggy about how he did the one on Jet?
