Making the spring shorter (so it's tighter) gives more effort to the rears. You will be amazed at the difference. Oh yeah...check the spring is there and still attached first as they do rust and snap
Thats odd, because Ally sent me a pm explaining how to modify the switch/plate to allow for more bias to the rear, but he never mentioned anything about shortening the spring, instead he said to unscrew the screw on the plate and adjust the plate itself.
Last weekend when I changed my rear discs I spent a good 20 mins under the car trying to figure out how to apply his wisdom, but apart from unscrewing the screw I couldnt for the life of me see how I can adjust the plate backwards (I assume to give more tension to the spring?) as the plate looks like a single piece to me with a screw going through it. Granted its pretty rusty down there, but I honestly couldnt see the plate being made out of two pieces (adjustable in any way).
Marlon, so you recon, if I fit a shorter spring which will pull the plate/switch outward from the rubber housing rather than in, is what is required to adjust the rear bias?
Also for the record, both of my 155 2.0 TS's have 284mm discs which I believe are the same diameter as the V6 and Q4, altough my earlier one had 145 Clover hubs fitted to the front
I found this out when I bought EBC discs for a 2.0 and they didnt fit properly, then changed to V6 which also didnt fit properly, until I measured the depth and discovered that 145 Clover discs @ 284mm matched the depth required to fit onto my car. Go figure.
