hi there

please see the e-mail i had from Larkspeed today i hope this puts your mind at rest blazo


"Hi Mark,
Yes this is totally normal, it's the progressive portion of the spring
that enables them to lower the car but still reach the top and bottom spring
cups when at full extent.
Regards Rob"

i knew the springs are progressive and i know how my car handles and i cant imagine there would be a problem

cheers

hi there

its been a couple of weeks since i finally finished the suspension change and here is a photo

the suspension is settling down now seem to be going everywhere faster especially corners

been to see how much to get my wheels refurbed £45 per wheels plus vat dipped sandblasted repaired 4 coats of different powder coatings and laquered then baked tyres refitted all done in a day just need to decide when to take the car/wheels up and what colour i will proberbly pick a darker colour than i have now would like to have gone black but on reflection thought better of it

Yep, old thread, but thought this might be handy for anyone reading the last few comments.
The paragraph on the left tells you why the bottom coils on a progressive spring will be touching.
