    Default Could it of got much worse?

    Just before christmas?
    Fitted a new Magnex system yesterday after the triumph i decided to go and see what the knocking in my suspension was.

    here is the list (from my Father in law)

    New Steering Rack
    Arb links (bushes i presume)
    New Springs very soon as they have gone visably mishapen
    Shocks are leaking

    So its gonna cost me some right cash as i cannot do it myself

    So what would you guys do, take of the wheels and newly fitted exhaust and chop it in?

    That's really bad. How's the rest of the car? If it's in good nick then possibly spend the money on these problems as you'll know it'll run well for a while afterwards.

    Out of interest what's the car's mileage?

    car is on 88k nearly.
    Father in law reckons the problems have come from lowering it last year however the springs shouldnt have gone mishapen there all over the place tbh.

    Sean i could maybe do some of the work with a hand but its having the time with work and the current weather it isnt gonna be much fun

    True the weather does not help at all the only nice weather we get is when at work kinda does my head in.

    The only thing is if you do fix these things it maybe a while till you get anymore problems then again there could be more just around the corner its going to be a tough decision
