    Thumbs down Front suspension Coils

    Thw front suspension coils on my Vec were found fractured when it had its first MOT " years ago. Vx replaced them with 'upgraded' ones under warrranty but I think they might have gone again! theres a slight knocking comes from the front end when going over speed bumps. Is there any comeback against Vx if they fail the MOT on Saturday?

    the knocking could be worn bushes.
    im not sure about what VX will do, someone with better knowledge about that will be along shortly no doubt.

    Sounds more like bushs to me, when I have had a spring brake it has been the last coil at the bottom and you can hear it rattle, have a look and see if you can see a broken piece any where.
