    Anyway, try-installed the Style 5 on the car and offset seems to be almost perfect for the car.

    The front is HIGH becoz half the engine is not in there :p Also the driveway is sloping downwards. After driving for a while it should settle back down :)

    Now if I can get the engine running by this weekend.......
