I just did some measurements and took a look at the lower front arms.
The arms are welded and have reinforcements. If I measure hart to hart of the weldings, I measure aprox 13 mm, that's about 1/2".
The rubbers/ bushes of the lower arms and tierods had their best time.
The tierods are both a bit bend, not very straight.

I measured the groundclearance from the sill down.
In the front it was aprox 105mm, that is 4 1/8"
In the back there is more space, about 130mm, that is 5 1/8"
A bit low, it looks nice, but the bottom already hit a few speedbumps, even when going very slow.

What is the best way to go?
The back has HiLo's, so I can raise the back.
The front is a different story, go with some new rubbers, bushes and rubber cones and see where we stand then, or buy HiLo's, and the minispares mssk3013 kit?
I have to get a good allignment in an allignmentworkshop then.

Does anybody know if I can order at minispares from Holland?
It seems a lot cheaper then when I get the same goods over here.
