    Any aftermarket coilovers should be fitted with new 'uprated' top mounts buddy. My old ones just kept knocking at the rears constantly [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I just took mine to my trusted local garage in colgate. They fitted some new top mounts and i paid for them hehe :P

    Not sure how much they cost though as my gf at the time paid for them!

    Re: Look what i just won!

    Well, they're on! 2 afternoons of playin and its all together! The rears were easier! But the silly top clips are GAY!

    Fronts were hard work to get in place
    but its all finish and sat kinda low!
    Tyres are just at the arches for the moment, seems fairly level front and rear.

    Il go get sum photos in a bit so you can see it!

    Re: Look what i just won!

    They are FK silverlines for the fronts only they were something like 280.

    I was gonna get the silverline X but to adjust the damping you have to remove them from the car so i thought bugger that.

    Oh and i bought them from Venom.

    Re: Look what i just won!

    OK so here's some pics at Bantham today.

    Car got stuck on a speed bump and we had to unload! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    However i dint think it was that low?
    May need to lift the front a little and see how it looks/feels etc.
    They are 6megapixels, but i thought id be nice to the 56k's!

    Re: Look what i just won!

    Yeah, Eagles... best tyres eva!

    Used to have them on my 205 and it went round roundabouts like a scooooby.

    Think the front has to come up a bit too... it looks more nose heavy in the pics than in real life tho.

    Ride? WHAT RIDE! Its like its solid. No lean in corners, very little tilt in braking and accelerating.

    Feels good when driving hard tho, and the brakes feel better for sum reason! hehe
