    Default Spring seat mod question.

    What exactly does this look like? Is it a plastic cup that the spring sits in or is it a plastic sleeve that slips over the spring coil? Anyone got any pics or diagrams?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Plastic sleeve that slips over the bottom 4" or so of the spring. There is a pic somewhere on the site, just recently in fact - one sec.....

    Plastic sleeves - blue ones and green ones, one colour for the front and one for the rear (can't remember which colour goes where), when I bought mine from Vx they also sold me, without asking, a pair of black rubber disks with cones in the middle, which went on top of the rear springs. Bare in mind that Vx's technical manuals state that as part of this you need to spray two coats of primer over the ends of the springs before fitting the sleeves.

    A common occurrence unfortunately when they change springs - they forget about the sleeves.

    Yep, chuck it back at them and get them to sort it.
