    At front looks spot on mate!
    Is probably the angle of the photo but at rear looks a bit low to me.

    well guys i finally got around to changing the boost gauge however im unsure of the readings ? was told they should stay at 14InhG not 18 as im looking at even when warm.. however when i first installed it after the car warmed up to 90 it stuck on 14inHg any help would be great.. im hopping it doesn't spell turbo change.

    .


    no its fine Paul not a problem.. now i have another rather annoying problem...after fitting the PSS's with HR sway bar's.. i have some sort of rattling coming from the rear end just came from Seb at Euro Automotive.. and said everything was tight and the sub frame was tight...

    so my dilemma is now that i don't know were the noise is coming from Seb suggested we do the sway bar links.. (which i have) or the rear front and rear rear wishbone bushes... the ARB already has new bushes fitted

    the noise is like a small pebble in a empty cardboard box..ever time i go over uneven surfaces on the road or a tiny bump or hole


    anyone has experienced such an issue after fitted new suspension and ARB's ... the front bushes have ALL been changed (powerflex ones) .. i could use some pointers please
