    Talking sorted out my noisy suspension today.

    hi,

    had konis fitted since march this year and had nothing but trouble with them, creaking,knocking, spring mod fitted,grease applied, new drop links,roll bar bushes. seemed ok for a while but it was worse than ever today.

    so i sorted it out, TOOK THE ******S OFF! gone back to standard for now.

    still want it lowering though. gonna make a phonecall to venom motorsport cos there must be somat wrong with them.

    my car is now spot on with the standard set up. peace man!

    kev.
