Yep. From the top inner of the rear guard to the centre of the wheel was 350mm

Thanks mate, currently have lowering springs which are the perfect height in the front but im a little low at the back (too poor for coilovers at the moment). They dropped me about 45mm down to 305mm and its a tyre rubbing party down there even with the guards rolled too :mad:. Itd be nice to find something with around 20-30mm drop to suit the look.

Sedan springs?

If you check STI spring ratings sedan and wagon rears will be different. Sedan bum is ligher than wagon. Same applies to the front but not as crucial, i.e. 3.0 heavier than 2.0 hence different part numbers. Search for 41 Automotive thread re: STI springs group order, some good info there (that is if you are interested to know of course) ;)

Thinking the same as sobanoodle, just too much lower to be anything else considering it was even before the swap. From what i've seen they don't actually list the rates as being any different between 3.0/gt and wagon/sedan but there is obviously some minor difference there.

You get rid of the other rims or just have them off till you get this sorted?

I had the springs put in before the rims were put on, its just an old pic I had

If anyone needs some awesome ride height for a BP5 wagon in future but cant afford coilovers id suggest the following:

Get Jamex super lows in the front

Get Tein S-Tech Street's in the back

Buy some extra cusion for the tein springs to prevent clunking when at high speeds hitting bumps

Should cost around $350-$400

The outcome looks like the below, people assumed I was running juddies but I just managed to get the perfect height with cheap gear

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
       
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
       
      Cheers Shaun
