Got them on my SWB and fitted straight on with a fitting kit. Fronts caught a little on full lock on a stud in the wheel arch but at the time I was lowered by 30mm so I just cut it off. If your going to lower it by 90mm like I did then the front tyres will need changing as they catch on the front wheel arch, here's a pic of her lowered 30mm

And here's a pic of her now lowered about 90mm with them painted Black
