    When you said you've replaced all the rear bushes, does that include the rear upper control arm/bushes?

    Just noticed it says std suspension on the printout sheet. My car is sri which has lowered sports chassis suspension before I changed to the coilovers so is this set up wrong? Think it's gonna be a trip back down to the garage.

    Although there’s no data on how the coilovers have been set up so using standard or Sri as the spec for the alignment is irrelevant that’s down to personal preference in the way it handles. Then saying that with JOM’s it’ll handle so poorly getting alignment done is pointless anyway as the car won’t go in the direction you want it to anyway it’ll wallow round corners of its own free will.

    I really can't afford to waste the 60 quid I payed for the alignment from this garage at moment due to losing my job 2 weeks ago. As for the jom coilovers been all over I tend to disagree but it sticks to the road without any wallow or skipping. It handles alot better than our old prefacelift with standard suspension which in wet or any moisture would have you side ways at any junction or roundabout and always felt far too high and rolling like an old shogun. But it's all personal preference and I'd love a decent set off lowering springs but finances say otherwise for a while at least. So does anybody know if I can and how to adjust the setting that is out in the printout? And when I can get to another garage what settings should my car be put under? Sport std or what? Anyone around county durham newcastle area had this 4 wheel alignment done lately

    Problem sorted went back to garage and hunter rep was there he helped set up my car but settings where entered for sport settings now sits and handles spot on. Realized that I need new front wheel bearing. No movement just lots of noise. So problems sorted and now have a car on jom coilovers that handles excellent on bends straights or sideways. The coilovers where dropped to lowest setting but have new sachs bump stops on top of the original jom bumpstops so no wallowing or skipping or harsh banging bottoming out.

    I only speak from personal experience of JOM's on a cdti hatch which hatch wise are more manoeuvrable than the longer heavier estate. The JOM's were only a few months old to, i found them awful compared to an sri estate with Eibach springs and 2-3 year old genuine GM sri Sachs shocks all round. Then better still is what i have now miles better than the one just described, Eibach springs are way cheaper than JOM's nowadays and even moreso for hatch's.
    Looking at it that's caster that's out which isn't supposed to be adjustable but i think you can move it a little on the strut top mount.

    Well Dog Book I will agree that the jom aren't excellent but I had 1 bust spring and siezed drivers front adjusting collars so just replaced for same but then was contacted by previous owner and he provided me with the old genuine good condition shocks springs amongst few other parts he had changed. They will be changed for some good lowered springs etc in future. Everyone has their own opinion what feels good also depends on driving styles. Have been back to garage and new settings are as pictured. Thanks for input though always appreciated.20190911_155643.jpg they put it on as sport settings with hunter rep showing them saying why his equipment is more user friendly. The previous setting was for standard suspension.
