Re: 156 suspension creak/bottoming
Chris, I doubted the claims re bottoming out too, but having fitted a strut brace it's true! I've got the ridiculously heavy 2.4JTD and can now assault speed ramps without fear of that sickening crunch that used to afflict the car with even the mildest of road imperfections.
I can only assume that as the shocks are now doing their own thing without partially fighting the lack of torsional strength across the front of the car, they are able to do their job better.
Seriously mate, do it. Best £100 you can spend.
