Re: Uprated Suspension parts?

Suspension is designed so that the majority of the shock loads are absorbed by the shock absorber (Ronseal moment) and by setting the coilovers hard your causing the same shock loads to be dissipated through other suspension components that werent designed to take that load, so only real option to ...

Re: New exhaust - mid pipe to short!

I decided to just go ahead and fit the back box but because the OEM flange is bevelled ...
