    Default another snapped spring owner

    yep you guessed it yesterday i had the pleasure of finding out that one of my front springs had snapped so a set of the eibach pro sports where fitted and the cars been fully setup using the hunter camera system it now drives like a dream .

    I opted for the lighter of the 2 eibach kits the E10-65-007-01-22 as i have a cdti150


    as you can see from the picture the spring had actually snapped near the end in the black sleeve ( this was removed so you can see the break ) so if you are doing visual checks make sure you look inside the black rubber sleeve






    a before pic





    and how she looks afterwards , the springs have still got to settle so it will probably drop a little bit more






    Handling has improved i`m glad i went for the eibachs they where good on my last veccy

    still running on the original shocks they looked fine so no point in changing them all i have done is swapped out the sri springs as for signs well i did notice the handling in the corners was not as good as it was and a very slight pull on the steering which is why i investigated it further as i know the alignment was fine due to it being done 3 months ago. Its a mod thats well worth doing the ride is so much better and it looks nice too the wheels fill the arches better
