got home last night after we spoke and thought i would make a start.
The weather was still ok. got the car on the axel stands both rear wheels off, o/s rear suspension off, so far so good although the nuts amnd bolts were like they were welded on... then the rain came down like a tropical storm so much so the the road flooded like a river.. so just put it all back together (quickly and badly). never been so wet and cross
anyway.. just put the rears on and it looks ok... may try the fronts in a bit.
Ive spent the morning driving round like a loon. I never would have belived the way a sort suspention set up encourges you to drive faster.. must be a confidence thing. The standard set up is very very poor.
yeah was a little silly when fitting them on the front just wanted to get them on and get out of the rain so made a mistake tightening the to nuts. ( Koni instructions are poo) But the set up seems ok so I carnt see why I would want to make it harder. never goining on the track. just lucky it snapped of on soft.
The rears just sit a little higher than perfect. I would have like a tight two fingers between the wheel and the arch and ive got two fingers a a little wiggle. ( A tryed and tested method of measurement).
But im 100% happy, thanks again for your advice, looking forward to the miltek so will most likley be in within the next couple of weeks.
