8x16 944 fuchs in front

Put a pair of 8x16 944 fuchs on the front of my turbo and lowered it a big 1/2 inch in front.

Adjusting the height and suspension on these cars is fun because you can feel the results.

It is surprising just how high the USA ride height starts out on these cars. It is like an inch over Euro height and a lot of people like me end up going below Euro height.

Dam full quack, I love that look but I can't do it with 16 inch wheels. Maybe I lower the front a 1/4 inch more.

Damn those of you with smooth, flat driveway entrances. Even with my pogo-USA spec rideheight, I must enter my driveway at an angle to avoid scraping the muffler or gouging the front tow hook into the ground. Looks good.

I do not live in flat land, many a speed bump, many a drive way I simply walk into, many a parking lot I park NEXT TO. You simply learn to read the road real quick. I've had the car this low for a year & a half now, and have only hit the muff once. As for the front...thats what the tow hooks are for...simply cheap, replacable skids!!

It really sucks in the snow though...2" of snow & I'm a snow plow!!
The car now sits 2-1/2" below Euro spec's. with 17 x 8.5 fronts & 18 x 11 rears.

As a side note, this has not been my first low car, so I've had lots of practice.

oilonly,

I know this is an old post but I'm curious about your front wheel setup - with 951 8x16 Fuchs and 225 width tires do you have any rubbing?

Thanks for the info!

I run the stock REAR 9x16 on the FRONT of my slant. Fits perfect no spacers no rubbing with 245/45-16 tires.
