I replaced my standard shocks and springs with the cheap FK AK Coilover Kit.
Handling was improved greatly but overtime they have started to knock.
I have read a few other threads about problems with these kits, in particular the rear ones.
I believe it came down to a dodgy batch of shocks
Anyway I am going to be removing the offending shocks and sending them off for replacement under warranty (i hope)
I have decided though I would prefer buying myself a more trusted brand splashing out a little more money and sell the replaced FK's on once the whole set have been replaced on my car.
My plans are to remove the rear shocks and replace them with something better for now.
I have a few questions i hope someone can answer:
- Is there a problem with having FK springs and shocks at the front and FK springs paired with a different brand of shock at the rear?
- Am I able to use any shocks with the coilover springs i have? (the springs are height adjustable) for example could i fit billstein B8s to the rear? or will this cause problems?
- On europerformance they list a few different brands of rear shock - billstien, Koni, KW, Weitec (Audi S3 / Shock Absorbers / Euro Performance Car Parts)
Which of these would you guys recommend to stick on the back if any of them are suitable?
Thanks in advance for any help and advice :-)
