So today i fixed the suspension issue and got it lowered by 40 mil.
took the strut and spring up to the garage, 3 minutes later the new spring was on.
Went to the trade place nearby after a quick call from the garage for a cash sale, got 2 new drop links for ?17. a bit pricey considering they can be had cheaper but i got them anyway.
an hour later and the second one was off, and taken up to the garage to get fitted.
I did notice the spring on the offside was actually brand new. looks like that side had snapped and was replaced, but they never did the other side. so that snapped. oh well, it's done now.
I also got some goodies in the post....
When i was at the garage he showed me a set of 17 inch wolfrace alloys that should fit. he'll be sticking some low profile tyres on and wants ?10 a wheel... can't complain at that!
Just need to check the offset and the like is all right to avoid it scraping the arches
I've also ordered some of those aero wipers, the flat ones, as the ones on the car are getting on a bit and aren't clearing the screen properly anymore.
I'm also waiting on the film to get the windows tinted just now, but i'm not sure how long they'll take to get here.
The new exhaust will get fitted at some point in the near future, and the pod filter i have on it just now makes the car sound brilliant!
Chuffed with my purchases so far.
And before anyone mentions, i'm well aware the car needs a clean. i've just not had the time to do it yet
