    Default Fk coilovers fitted but something not right

    I had fk coilovers fitted few days ago because drivers side spring broke. After fitting the passenger side is making a noise like the spring has broke. The garage that fitted them says all top mounts drop links etc are fine but the car doesn't drive streight it want to go to the left. When I put my foot down it will pull either left or right. The garage now says I have to get my camber and wheel alignment done. Is this true or is something wrong.

    Sounds like springs not seated properly if its making broken spring noise.

    It will drive all over the place without the camber and tracking being done.

    It will also kill your tyres.

    I've just dropped it off at garage again to have a look at the noise. So I will get the alignment and camber done tomorrow. Can't kill the tyres as the garage is also a testing station and says the tyres will pass m.o.t which is end of month.
