Finally, Coilovers Fitted

Recommended Posts

Hi chaps, well its been a long wait but I have finally fitted my coilovers today. 

I decided in the end on a set of adjustable MDU's from Malasia, (due to funds). I read all the reviews I could find, some really good and some bad, anyways, they were £400 with free delivery, amazingly, from pushing the 'buy it now' button, they arrived in four days. 

Fitment was relatively straight forward with all holes and fittings matching up nicely.


I still need to have the tracking done elsewhere as the front is too low for this garages equipment.


If anyones interested I can keep you guys informed of how they do over the next few months.


And of course some self gratification pics. (camera phone, sorry)

I've only done about 5 miles since fitting, but so far they feel solid, I have set them to maximum stiffness for now purely because I find it easier to adjust from that standpoint.


Once they settle and they're aligned correctly I will keep adjusting until I get that happy medium of performance and drive ability.

Seen a set from the states that works out a little bit less but are the same ones, did you pay import tax ? after a set once ive got the ECU out of the way. Much better stance as well mate Congrats

Cheers Ash, very happy with the stance myself.


Are you looking at the ones from 'speedyracer' ?


No import tax but the packaging had been opened before i received it, I assumed customs had looked inside but who knows.
