Yes, it's the STD 110 now

Basically Jon we agreed that it's half an ST220 but with a D for Diesel

It's a proper Dark Art isn't it? Hats off to you Raymondo that you manage to get them so spot on!

It's much better now I've raised the rear a touch Scott (although the front lip really doesn't like me anymore!!)

Letting them bed in for a bit until I start fiddling with the damping rates but they are noticably stiffer than stock springs. Getting a touch of bump steer but it is lowered 20+mm so that's understandable.

Need to get it on a dead level surface to check the height at the front as it looks to be settling slightly lower on the passenger side.

For the cost of them, they are definitely a set of coilovers to consider if you don't want to break the bank!

Don't forget, the geometry set-up is worth its weight in gold. You definitely get what you pay for when a professional geo is done.

Couldn't agree more mate. We are lucky to have someone as knowledgeable as Ray so close.
