Really it comes down to cops being absolute morons. What some of my mates do is keep their original suspension and some stockers, and all that stock stuff so they can take it down to the pits and get fixed up. In SA you have like 24-48hrs for minor defects to go to the cop shop n show them its fixed. But for example how stupid cops are, on private property, at mi mates school, they jammed their carpark full of cars so you couldnt move, but there was still an access road that didnt block access to the school, some smart copper decided to give em all parking tickets.
Some cops just like to abuse their privillages. And at the end of the day, if a cop wants to find something wrong with your car, they will as really no car on the road other than in original condition and brand new is actually technically "roadworthy"
Its like their method of defecting cars for dark tinting. In SA their official method is to look through the tinting, and if they cannot see the driver in the drivers seat in NORMAL day light, then its defectable.
Sounds dodgy because that allows people to have their own perception on the matter, and something that one cop would find legal, another might find illegal. Its rather stupid actually.
and SPHELL, did the cops MEASURE your suspension?? Did they use a dB meter on your exhaust?? And how did they have a proper book or something to work out the maximum manufacturers wheel size limit?
If they didnt, they cant really defect you for stuff they THINK is right.
