    You must be winding the adjusters the wrong way.

    Sorry guys, didn't actually get home til midnight last night - didn't get finished til then - there was niggle after niggle after niggle :(

    All done and looking brilliant though - there was a issue with one standard rubber part that needed trimming that didn't help the height and I suspect they were getting wound the wrong way because the husband (non mechanic helper) never told me either way what 'sorted' it - they probs felt a bit daft :)

    Mod thread starting soon :D
