GT Blackline front strut...
Guys, I've looked all over for some more clues on the exact factory setup for the front of a Blackline and I'm still at a loss, here's the story...
Just before the MOT I felt the front of the car was a bit loose, put some new rubber on there and it felt better but not great, MOT time came, regular guy checked it over and said it was fine from an MOT point, MOT passed.
But it still didn't feel right, gets really skatty under decent right foot use, like really bad torque steer, but not if that makes any sense?? Anyway..
Had a look and someone has done a right bodge on the drivers side strut, looks like somehow the damper thread has stripped, they've packed it up with washers and there's a nut on the top with barely enough thread to clamp it in so there's clearly play!! I'll post some pics later.
So I'm just going to replace the whole strut spring and all if I can find one, and do all the arms bushes etc while I'm at it. Thing is there are so many colour codes on the springs and can I heck find one anywhere with the coding on the Blackline!!
Did they ship these out with a different suspension setup? And if I can't find right complete replacement are the dampers the same so I can just swap the spring over?
Thanks in advance, need to stop scratching my head over this and get the job done
