VMAXX Coilovers

Finally got these fitted after months of waiting - originally I was supplied with the non-vRS ones which are missing the front ARB links.

The replacements got stuck in Europe for ages on their way here but arrived eventually.

Next to the standard shocks they look very short. The compbrake top mount is fitted in this picture

Same with the rears - a fair bit shorter.

Comfort wise it's pretty good. Much firmer than stock but not crashy over bumps.
There's a lot less roll on corners.

At first I was a bit worried as it was pretty jiggly and was wobbling my love handles over the bumps in 50k zones :)
But after 50ks or so it seemed to settle in a bit and is a lot better now.
I've wound them down a little bit more since taking these photos. Winding it lower also takes some tension out of the springs making it a little more comfortable.
