    Was it the cheap fk springs and shocks you fitted
    I've fitted them on 2 different cars and there were noisy as hell on both
    So removed both sets
    Loads of banging when even driving on smooth roads

    Yeah those are the ones... Andy is debating putting his PIs back on but think we gonna test new sleeves first...

    These FKs have made his car sit a little lower too so had to lose his spacers due to catching. Will see what happens Sunday on our 3rd attempt lol.
