Munkee hasn't got a petrol vitara anymore.. :lol:

He also chopped them down a bit and has since stopped using them and gone back to the calmini ones I believe.. I'm sure it was discussed in another thread the other day..

Hehe, Colin has asked me already.

I couldn't give him a straight answer as I have a calmini kit and diesel engine, so my answer would have been mainly useless!

So, Who's using them? I actually only know of one member (on a standard armed truck)?

The merc springs I have would EASY give 3"+ lift on a vit with standard arms!

I've just bought a set of C180 springs to give them a try too :banghead: :banghead:

Damn you, 'Buy it now'... :-l
