H&R VTF kit inner clearance?

Hi there,

Curious how many people are running the H&R kit, what the spring rates are like and if it suffers the same clearance issues as the KW V1 which I currently have fitted?

Cheers,

Got sold a V1 kit by a Vendor here, even the V2 kit was out already. At that point I didn’t know there are two versions.
I reached out to KW and asked for updated parts, they tried to sell me a brand new V2 kit.
Reason one is clearance, reason two is H&R is the lowest HAS kit on the market.

Thanks a lot for measuring them.

That's interesting, I wonder if it sits higher on the shock, that would be the only way it has better clearance.

I think I'm just putting the stock perches back on and Eibach springs.


Cheers,

I have the H&R VTF kit installed and am planning to adjust the height this weekend. I can provide any measurements/pics if needed.
