Default Lowered XKs

I only found a few threads with pics of lowered XKs. Is there anyone out there with some pics I could take a look at? Thanks

I live in the mountains and there are already far too many locations where the splitter makes contact with the road.
It is a really great look for these cars though!

Thanks guys! I am trying to decide if I want to do this too. It does look really nice on both cars...Not that concerned with rear camber issues, etc. Are you guys rolling with spacers also?

I have 20mm spacers up front. No issues with rubbing during turns or anything. I am running 305ís on back with my 20x10 wheels and only over large dips at high speed I may here a little rubbing.

I can put on spring isolators on the rear to bump up the height a little bit.

Question or statement?

My 2014 Dynamic, by virtue of the OEM bodykit already sits 20mm lower than stock, IMO it's a bit too low esp as keep catching the front splitter...boo hiss!

Two tyre places could put up on ramps (ATS and Halfords autocentres) as the bodykit was in the way in front of the rear wheels

Iím curiious about that too. They looks similar to H&R..I found them on eBay for $200 from a older guy that thought they rode rough and didnít want them anymore.

It handles awesome now.

Found this from another forum member. H&Rís. Itís low. Still not sure what the differences between earlier car and later cars are. Most springs are for 07-09. I think they are the same for all years..

The handling difference with the lowered springs is amazing the car sits completely flat through the corners and none of that nasty GTIsh body roll

Lower mine with the H&R Springs with wheel spaces to push out the rims a bit

As it is, mine just barely clears curbs and parking lot blocks. Since I still find it difficult to judge where exactly the front of my car is, if it were lowered, I am sure I would no longer have a front splitter left!

I use the parking sensors when in doubt
