    I just wondered who knows the benefits for the rear Geomaster hubs, am I right they will lower your setup lining all your geometry bars to a stock position and increase grip?
    I think its the only thing that I dont have on my car now and wondered if its needed or not.

    I use them.

    Unless you have mega powers just run bigger tyres IMO

    They also shorten the distance between roll centre and centre of gravity which gives you more roll stiffness without affecting bump stiffness

    Why? Surely geos help massively with bump steer and if ur cars real low it helps with cornering grip too?

    Can't go really low without headache.

    Bump steer, yes the fronts are sure worth it full stop... But the rears are a pain, but well worth it if you have big powers.

    What Clive said basically, know quite a few people having problems with the rears when running lowwwww but the front look good to use. I was thinking about just getting the fronts, ended up with Clarkey hubs instead

    Not to do with the coil overs (If were talking about the same problem?) its to do with driveshafts

    Ok, thank you for your reply, I thought it was related to the coilovers length. Could you give me some more details about this driveshafts problem? I am looking for a solution for my front and rear knuckles and don't want to be stuck regarding the ride height.

    I already have the CS2 with swift springs, but I'm wondering if the rear knuckles would go there and seeing your reviews regarding this ride-height issue, I would like to know more for sure if you don't mind!

    how do you find the swift springs compared to the stock springs and what rates are you running?

    Hi Stefan, I only drove the car once since the LS is in, it's been nearly one year that we are working on it now, so I can't really tell you the difference. I bought the CS2 and swapped the springs for 11kg fronts and 9kg rears after discussing the subject with Kam and other people that swapped an LS engine in a S-chassis before. I also have a pair of 7kg swift springs if I feel the need to go back to the original CS2 spring rates set-up once I'll get some time behind the wheel. I plan on doing a full test with both swift set-up (11/9 and 9/7) opposed to the CS2 springs (9/7) once the car is finished btw, I'll let you know!

    I was going to buy some a while back but the listing recomends 18" wheels and I HATE big wheels. I emailed dw asking why 18s were needed and never got a reply (so didnt spend my money) can anyone give any info on this?

    I run 17" all round.

    Have even got GTR r32 wheels on the rear ok with 25mm spacers.

    Need 18"s if you have aftermarket lca's... Can grind them a bit ...

    So DW state 18's to cover their arse on all types of possibly :)
