Just a foot note to the main review. With a suspension dump of nearly two inches, the whole caster and camber setup is thrown way out. My local tyre shop luckily has a HUNTER MACHINE , this is a £25,000 laser set-up system.. and the price to me to set it all up ? a lousy £45...! and it only took 40 minutes.
Don't accept the crap I was hearing from most places, "oh we'll need it for the day mate, one of our lads 'ere used to set up Porsches,he'll work it out" ..... Even the main agent sounded bloody clueless.
Quite simply this is a specialised job , and there are specialised people out there who do this every day in their stride and as you can see charge a pittancefor reference I used PROTYRE in Poole 01202 659911, www.protyre.co.uk.
After spending all that money on a suspension kit, initially the drive was not anywhere near as good as after they'd set it up. The drop had thrown out my rear castor, ie., too much toe in and way too much camber. There are 4 adjustors on the wishbones with little dials on, they simply twiddled them and the laser machine re-set everything, all on a fixed four poster lift. Without setting the car up you're wasting your time fitting the kit.
It would be like buying Nike trainers and giving them to your Granny!
