You absolutely sure the springs haven't sagged? Mines down about 25mm over standard and even with the 3" zorst under it its fine over speed bumps. Tip Of The Day: Soak the top nuts on the rears in penetrating oil then stanlely knife the old bushes off and hold the damper rod with mole grips then undo the top nut. Its a pain trying to hold the flat with a tiny spanner. Matt > -- > The poster formerly known as Skodapilot. >
