    Default Apex!

    hi, fitted a set of 35mm apex springs 60-8200 to the motor (2008 1.8 exclusiv) yesterday! the result, its back on its standard springs

    after fitting there was loads of loud clonks coming from the front, a local garage found that the top coil of the spring was getting snagged on the coil below it when being bounced up and down, ive lowered loads of cars over the years and never come across this problem before. it seems like the spring is to weak to hold the weight of the car?

    anyone else had a problem like this?
