They are driving me mad!....on the drivers side I keep having to raise a little more as they constantly drop and then I get the whole ARB/Driveshaft rubbing situation which is a pain in the A£$&!!

Has anyone experienced this? do you think it could be a faulty shock as the pass side seems fine?

Cheers

Yes I had this problem during the first 3 weeks of fitting them on. In the end now I've had to replace my arb with an R32 one to elimate the rubbing.

They have been on for about 3 weeks now...so the R32 ARB does that fit without any issues? did you have to change drop links?

I raised the drivers side when the problem started and it seem fine for a few miles and all of a sudden I was getting rubbing everytime i steered left. It drove me crazy.

I can now get hold of R32 ARBs for about £85 from VW

yup sorted the issue right out. It does go under the driveshaft.

I've now wound down my coilovers on the front bit more. Done about 60miles at the weekend with no problems at all.
