Red9design wishbone set up question

Post by 58splitty » Fri Jul 13, 2018 5:55 pm

Hi all, its been a while since Ive been on here.

Im looking at getting a red9design front end wishbone set up. I cant find anything regarding the lowest ride height that would be achievable on a set of 15" wheels.

Anyone got any front end images of whats realistically possible and the settings you used.

Any help is appreciated before I spend a lot of cash

Cheers

This is as low as a red9 can go on the front. I’m not running tubs but the tyres would catch on the top arch over big bumps but I’m not running super low profile tyres, mine are 165/65 15 so you could go lower and avoid rub with different tyres.
In the end I went up one notch on the bolt pattern to raise it a bit.

I’ve never driven a standard split before so I can’t really compare but it drives straight as an arrow and the ride is smooth enough.
