I will be replacing my suspension soon (probably in the new year). I was going to go for the Eibach / Bilstein B4 combo and am after your best price for parts and fitting with alignment. How much can you do me for?
Just got another quick question about sorting my rubish clunky suspension. I get a horrid loud bang when I go over even small bumps and grids occaisionally... not good! From reading the forum I hear that top mount bushes can need replacing (especially as I have about 74k on the clock). If when your engineers are fitting my new shocks they notice anything that looks a bit badgered ie top mount bushes... can you just replace them (I mean do you carry stock of standard bushes) and is the cost covered in the fitting charge . I was thinking of having a run up to Awsome on Saturday so I know where you are, and also to book the car in.
My cars booked in at Awsome this Saturday for the Koni kit... you talked me out of the eibachs and b4's! Cant wait to have it fitted!
Just a quick question: My rear wiper connection has split and is leaking on my boot lid sensor. I hear you can get larger uprated connections for the rear wiper to fix this problem. Do you have any in? Or will I have to go to the stealers for these?
Ive taped and tie wraped it for now but it still leaks a bit. I can fix it my self if you have any of the plastic push on connectors spare. I know this is a really common fault with the mk4 so just thought you might have had some connectors in stock. Does'nt matter if you have none in, I'll get it sorted another time.
Had my car done last weekend (koni kit) thanks, totally transformed the cars handling! 
However I am a little dissapointed in the rear ride height. Currently I have a 1 finger arch gap at the front but a 3 finger gap at the rear. Asked on the forum and people have suggested weighing down the rear but I cant ride round with 80kg in the boot from now on! Is the rear going to drop eventually? All the pics I have seen of cars with the koni kit look nice and level. Should I just give it more time (its has only been 5 days)? What are my options?
Should have mentioned that I was from the forum [:$]
Thought the shocks might take a bit longer to bed in but just wanted to check (you can get varied advise as to how long the shocks can take to settle on here). The heavy diesel lump at the front has bedded in the fronts soon enough but there is no weight in the back. I'll load the boot up with my old wheels for a week or 2 to help the settling process.
The guys were about 3 hours doing my car, but spotted an axle bush and cv boot that need doing [:|]
Sorry to be a pain but the rear end is still quite high. Been doing some measuring and it seems my car is 30mm higher at the rear than some other forum members with the same set up but a level car. Any chance something can be done about this, I think it looks a bit daft at the moment! Definately not what I was expecting for the cash spent. Just read a post giving advise about leveling:
Here's a couple of things I noticed when I fitted springs to my car : when I fitted my rear Eibach Pro-Kit springs I noticed that there were separate metal top and bottom spring seats that had to be put on the spring before you put the spring on the car. The top one defo had to go on but I think the bottom one could be missed out as it was only a daft thin metal job. This should give abit less rear ride height. Also when I did my rear springs I loosened the axle mounting bolts after I sat the car back on the ground and then bounced the car abit, and then tightened the bolts back up so the mounts would sit properly at the new ride height. Doing this helped quite abit.
Just wondering if doing this would make the car sit level?
I need my axle bushes doing so I may as well let you have a look when I get that done. Might be a couple of monthe though. For now I have loaded another 50 house bricks in my boot... what MPG [:S]! Been doing some reading up on here and a heavy load has done the trick for a few people. Apparently bags of wet sand seem to be the favourite! I'll give you a ring when I can book my car in for the axle bushes.
