Eibach shocks have been fitted today
First off I had already fitted pi springs on the orginal shocks which dropped the car by 30mm.
I have reused the pi springs with the new shocks.
On removing the old shocks I found that the rear drivers side shock was weaker than the rear passenger side. And the front passenger side shock was considerably weaker than the drivers side front.
This may ahve explained the poor handling. The PI springs were never as tight as the orginal shocks so that did not help either. It took approx an hour to do the change over with all the work carried out by my mate Ron (big thanks go out ).
The refitted PI springs are now under much more pressure as the new shocks are shorter even tho euro performance do not state this on their website. This was a bonus and can only help the handling.
On the first drive out of the workshop the difference was noticed instantly. Just driving the 7 miles back home and wow huge improvement.
Worth every penny already. Will be out tomorrow for a couple of hundred miles for work so really looking forward to it for a change!
The car drives more positively in and out corners and even on the straight the car has a different stance. Its fun to drive again
Well when I got home the regal front strut was waiting for me, unfortunalty I could not find the torx socket needed to fit it so will have to buy another one tomorrow.
Well it will give me a chance to have a drive before it is fitted and then I will see if it makes any difference afterwards.
Further report to follow tomorrow night
