No worries. This is a community and as such we need to look out for one another. [thumb]Very encouraging news for current and future Vmaxx owners. Thanks for the time and effort you both put into this!
Boom.Excellent writeup....very in depth [thumb]
You should be able to. Seriously, Like I said above, we just want to have each other's backs.Awesome write up Justin. I'd Rep you again if I could!
Have anyone modified these yet?Here are some pictures that I took as I dug into my suspension again. I went back in in order to remove the locking collar and eek a couple more millimeters of low out of the suspension.
Here's a pic of the front coilover that shows where the FSB link connection. You can see that it is welded into the bottom of the coils. It appears as though there is about 2mm or more of usable thread below where the weld is.
This picture is of the BACK of that same link mount. The medal, shown with the red arrow, is the OEM bracket that the ABS line connects to the OEM strut. You can see that it is well above the mount and because of that there is another 2mm or so lost in adjustability.
Here is the front view showing the holes aligned and how much coil is left that can't be used if the OEM bracket is left on or not modified.
This is the bottom of the knuckle. The silver is the bottom of the coil. You can see that it is not flush with the bottom of the knuckle. There is no danger in this, but it makes me wonder if the knuckle on the Mk2 (Euro) is shorter and therefore the car can go lower. My earlier guesstiment of 1/2" was about right. There is perhaps a little more than that.
Here are my measurements after I removed the front locking collar and modifying the ABS bracket. I didn't have a picture of it after like I thought. I'll take one on Wednesday when the wheels are off again. Basically I just cut the top of that bracket off so that it is below the mount on the coil. I level the rear by adjusting the RSB.
