So its been a busy day at my place of work, AKS tuning working on the DB9.
H&R springs fitted - 25mm drop
H&R 11mm front spacers
H&R 23mm rear spacers
New genuine side repeaters

I think the car sits much nicer and has a little more of an aggressive look.

I know its not going to be everyone's taste but the DBS sits some what similar and I wanted to keep the optional extra 15 spoke wheels.

Below are some some pics for you smile

Thanks
Paul

I think that looks great

did the 23mm spacers go on with replacement studs - or bolt on to hub then bolt to spacer

the 7 spoke V8V wheels need extended syuds fitted

That looks good, fills out the rear arches well.
Looks like the studs are cut for the rear spacers to fit.

any issues with humps or dips?
no wheel rub on full lock or full lock and dip?
body roll ok? is the ride stiffer?

Thanks the comments fellas.

The ride is actually better. Smoother ride, feels more stable and and bobs less up and down at higher speeds.

No strapping or rubbing at full lock so far.

Yes the rear studs need to be cut as the spacer includes studs built into them, the front spacer is thinner so no need to cut the studs but you get new wheel nuts supplied so they go further into the wheel.

If your interested in getting the same job done pancholi, pop me an e-maul paul@akstuning.com smile

Very nice !!!!
I've done the same spacing and lowering on my V8V Roadster except I used Velocity springs.
With my style of wheel there was no need to cut down the existing studs so will be easy to go back to original if ever required.
The more purposeful stance really suits these cars smile

Excellent. Feels stiffer in the corners but no compromise on "comfort" - very pleased smile
