Front Shocks Se6a

No There is nothing that will make the fit properly without modifying the bottom wishbone. You can try to make the eyes smaller by fitting the exiting washer to the outside. Doing this means both ends of the metal shock bush will not make good contact and will freely rotate when the should not. Fitt...

Front Shocks Se6a

I'm not sure why the SE5 spax shocks continue to be advertised for the se6a, they are truly unsuitable IMHO. you might as well bodge in some from an old ford escort.

Knock from Front Suspension

I had a similar problem and it was caused by a cracked lower suspension mount. Was impossible to see without removing the lower arm.

New Member - Ireland

Welcome along, seems like it has a lot of money spent on it in the past https://www.adverts.ie/vehicles/reliant ... e/17530727

I would be looking for a warranty on the paintwork, it not the first time that patch has been touched up.
interior looks great.

Spax adjustable coilovers

The spax i got from GW were not suitable for se6a. The bolt eyelets are too wide to fit between the bottom/top bracket. They did not come with dust covers either. I made them fit by getting new top hat washers made up but its still not right. I'm not sure which car you plan to fit them on but i woul...

3 more Scimeter coupe for sale in Ireland

Its an annoying feature of advertising anything here. People will either put 1€ 123456€ or POA. I never bother enquiring to these ads. I suspect if i have to ask how much it is I cannot afford it. Its bizarre behaviour that stops the neighbours knowing how much you are selling stuff for :roll: :roll:

Brake fluid warning lamp

I believe the wires at the pads and master cylinder are all earth wires. Both lights should come on with the handbrake. I have seen the light flicker when moving the handbrake lever also so the wiring for the warning light does go via the handbrake switch too.
