    Default Front coil spring Mod'

    Can any of you that have had the front coil spring sleeve mod done on your car, (to apparently stop the cracking noise, due to spring and spring seat misfit) confirm that the noise is still intermittently there.
    Cheers Pete

    Reoccurs about once a month on my wife's Signum. Did you have the ends of the springs sprayed with primer twice over as well, or just the sleeves fitted?

    Don't think they were primed as by the looks of it I would say just the sleeves fitted and a load of grease in the seat area.

    I think Vx's technical bulletins mention the spraying, that may contribute to the success.
