    What happened with this? I've just received some BC coilovers and no tabs for the ARB links! Do I just remove the ARB and have done with it?

    I just zip tied the sway bar back out of the way whilst I get a bracket made.

    Impul when you re use the stock top mounts on the front what of it do you use? Just the top half and the bearing? Cos obviously the spring seat won't be of any use.

    What springs need to be ordered to make up for the bigger gap in the front wells, don't wanna go to low that it will be scraping.

    Will any k13 lowering spring fit on our cars? Some of the springs that I see are k13 1.2 and 1.5 so will these still be a fit?

    yes they will fit, take note, 1.2L is lighter than the 1.5L K13

    Yes I checked that, I notice many of the k13 springs are either 30mm all around or 25mm front 10 mm rear, I'm trying to find the right set to balance everything out as the rear has a bit of a bigger gap.

    Yeah well I'd choose something that lowers the car beyond 30mm, my springs were spec'd for the 1.2L base model March in Japan.
    I got about 40mm (1.5") front & rear.
