    Had my weitec TX on a week now, well impressed. Just want to know, what's the easiest way to adjust the damping/rebound (located on the end of the piston and adjusted with an Allen key). The only way I can se to do the fronts is to remove the wipers and scuttle panel? Failing that drill a hole in it! Backs? I have no clue.....

    the backs are behind all the boot trims i think they are well hidden away it would prob mean taking half your boot apart to get to them lol i had a nightmare when i had to take off the pannel to get to the sub

    who fitted your coilovers onto your car bud you should ask them if there is an easyer way to get to the top of the shock both front and back
