    Default Suspension arms

    Right fitted my two suspension arms today as the back end was kicking out, when I was changing them over noticed that the two springs were different sizes could this be the reason for one side bouncing about when I hit bumps? Also changed the strut top bearing which was quite a simple job no pics im afraid but lets just say im knackered

    Different sized springs would make it sit lop sided mate, bouncing would be down to shockers

    Its as if the full rear left hand side bounces after a pot hole. Do I need a new shocker? Anyone selling one? Dont want to spend too much

    You can get bilstein b4's for about 40 quid a side

    For a no-name brand probably about 20 quid a side, i'd replace them in pairs tbh
