tested car for week now with new brake pads and i can feel much better braking now. i put Ceramic ones in front for first time. and Premium in rear. before this old pads where just premium or standard ones, and they were making all kind of noises when i was braking , was really bad stuff. now these ones are just silent. not making any noise there. and brake very good. im sure noone heard of this name out there, but here they are popular. and i used them for couple years now and i know what they are and how they perform. they not cheap ones as well cost similar to some bosch ones or TRW. and my car is not street car and im not braking hard and often, but i need proper brakes too. i read that here people just put some Brembo or TRW pads but i think thats just overkill. and then they say that they squeks. i mean they can be too hard, maybe made for high temperatures like racing pads. so i dont need any of that.

It could go in the box as well. My VSR is mounted in the engine bay.

Front is always lower than rear unless you put a bigger lift front vs rear.

I have 27cm ground clearance front and 31cm rear when unloaded

well ground clearance is under car that can be different because skid plates and such but what your heights like from wheel arch to ground does that still not same more to rear or its same ?

i mean that height


or to center of wheel


im just thinking like my front shocks pretty used i think like if i change to new shocks and springs all front would go up . or if i add like 1cm more to front lift .
im thinking my front lift is lower then rear, i mean those spacers. because i thought that front would sit higher if i make then equal.
and like does that would affect handling if front would go more up. like be same as rear .
because i think my ride becoming more harsh in front as i go into some bumps on road feels like its hitting it really hard even if i go pretty slow. maybe its time to change shocks to KYB and then springs i could put KYB too.

and in reality my all 4 wheels have little bit different height from ground to arch. both rear are different in couple milimetres and front are diff too

Here's some pictures. 48cm is measured from wheel center to wheel arch at the rear at ride height, 59 cm is at full droop.

This was a measure for the rear only.

ohh ok. but from your pic looks like its sits same front and rear. at least that gap between tire and wheel arch seems same . i think my front springs are not same in hardness ,i changed one side myself and it was original springs with those color lines marking , so my colors on driver side and passenger side dont match. and then rear, well i dont know why rear not same height maybe because front is not. but i guess couple milimetres dont make huge impact. at least my VDC system not reacting to that so its great.
