    Thanks everyone, really appreciate the feedback.

    Purchased VZ Monroe GT shortened struts that came with Super Pro strut tops and Lovells SSLs, I’ll swap my King Spring SSL’s into them as they sit lower. Being VZ front struts I had to purchase VZ sway bar links as they are different to VY ones. Will be fitting them on the weekend.

    Coolant hose behind the supercharger cracked and is leaking so will be replacing that tomorrow, it is an absolute pain to do from what I’ve heard as you have no room to work with. Also been getting a rattle on cold start up from the front of the engine, suspected water pump, took the belt off and found that there’s play coming from the water pump so will be changing that once it comes in the mail.

    Cars aye ?!

    Fitted front struts with my king spring SSL in them and also replaced the coolant hose behind the supercharger, it was a b*tch of a job to do with the lack of visibility and room.
    Purchasing 19×9.5 front Bbs LM reps on Tuesday so I’ll be 9.5 all around,
    The 19×8.5 fronts will be for sale if any one wants them :)
    Also need to change the water pump, read into it, not sure if it’s easy enough for me to do myself

    Fitted the 19×9.5 Front wheels, ended up going with 225/35 fronts, fair bit of stretch. Keeping offset to my self but front wheels poke out a good 10-15mm with the front cambered in as much as possible.
