He is lowered. It was dark and it was set to 'safe' height as it.was late. We plan on fixing that tonight or tomorrow.

Dp is installed too. Was easy peasy. He needs your dp back klod like asap. His is nasty broken.

problem is I would need good exhaust to put back on my car if his is busted up it wouldnt work out so well for us.

couple hints with mk4 lows.

remove front sway bar endlinks and store in spare tire foam so they dont get lost after removing end links rotate swaybar as far backwards as possible. if you dont it will bind like a MOFO

also lower car to point that passengers axle is about .5" from rubbing on frame. that will be as low as you can get with only occasional axle rubbing frame noises any lower and you'll rub over every bump. at that height I only rubbed under really large bumps/potholes
