    Default Coilovers

    Any one got coilovers and have they had problems. Had some fitted and there was a slight knocking from them so removed them. Need to know what the noise was and if I should refit them they looked the nuts

    Do you not get a knocking noise on full lock and how low do you run them. Someone said they did a gear box in with them on I don't know how they did like.

    I dont get a knocking noise with mine, had no problems with them at all.

    dont know how they did their gearbox in other than hittin speed bumps at speed.

    I run mine at the lowest they go, about 75-80mm, middle box on exhaust scraps a few speed bumps and front plastic bumper lip scuffs a few places.

    Mine are KW variant 1 coilovers they were about £780 from demon tweeks, KW were the only company makin coilovers for the vectra back when i was lookin at gettin them, about 4 years ago.
