    Has anyone got any pics of FK AK coilovers fitted to the rear of an S3 8L? I went to fit mine earlier and I can't work out how the alloy adjusters fit. I thought they would fit below the spring and over the lower spring mount that is fitted to the lower suspension arm but the adjuster doesn't fit over the loating nipple thing!
    Any ideas or have they sent me the wrong ones? The part number on the box is SMVW9013

    Cheers, Ash

    Just done a search and found this thread... Is this true the adjuster goes on the top? Mines on the bottom now but i didnt think it seemed right? I put the spring in how the stock one came out, which only allowed for the adjuster to go in the bottom but obviously it doesnt fit over the bottom of the bumpstop... Hm. Im driving it like this at the minute and it seems ok :/

    Switched mine round yesturday, they do fit much better adjusters on the top... On S3 not A3. Got some clonking now though, as if the coils are touching eachother :/
