I used the Condor 12mm risers and sure enough, the car did look to be about 12mm lower (which was way too much for stock rear quarters) the GC spring comes with an adjustable collar that I was able to raise about 12mm (to the middle of the total adjustment) to counteract the lowering from the subframe risers. However, the main advantage should be less camber when the car is excessively lowered. At the moment I am not dialing in fitment, but rather preparing for when the widebody kit gets installed.

Considering I got quoted $450 for a set of used trailing arms and axles from a z3(I6), I might leave it the way it is and compensate with spacers if needed. Either that or steal the rear end off of my neighbor's z3 in the middle of the night. He wouldn't notice if I put my trailing arms and axles back on his car right? lol

I've wanted to make a thread for all the happenings on the car, but it is easier to just post to IG. When things are all said and done I might make a summary thread.
