FocusHero so any advice on how to remove the fender wells in the back (i think you refereed to them as bump stops

Mile30 You could go with a coil-over setup. Most people that are that low started with a standard coil-over setup, then they cut bumpstops and the helper spring (or remove it all together). You're gonna re-learn driving your car anyway, as the connection to the road feels different. TA Technix is the cheapest coil over setup you'll find for the mkI. It used to be Raceland, but those sold out quickly and Technix took it's place. That setup will allow you to run anywhere from stock height down to 4" lower than stock without cutting or modification of the pieces! You can go an inch or two lower than that by cutting those aforementioned parts; but leaving them in-place makes for a safer install and gives you slightly better regular driving behavior.

felixthecat Great job, Pyroinsa. That one of the bummers 'bout zetec's= the header when you lower it that much. I suppose bags are the only way to go if you want a svt that low, w/o messing up the header.

Fixed! That takes a lot of custom fabrication to do that. I wouldn't know where to begin, but at least I fixed your pic lol
Lows like that, you have to re-learn how to drive and you will still risk bottoming out. Since you have an SVT, you will also have to do something about the header, or else it will get destroyed.
