But if your daughter is intent on driving it, please the first bit of money you should be spending is on a set of new tyres. I note from the pictures on the same axle one old style looking continental and a khumo powermax. I like saving money and getting the most out of something, but 150 buys you ...

Do check your rear trailing arms to be sure one isn't giving way. Think it would be alarmingly obvious if so, but while you are there. The Monroe rear damper / spring units are generally very good, so if you have a fully functioning replacement you could simply swap that in and carry on enjoying th...

ground to jacking, gap between arch and wheel top
NSF: 6", 2"

Being a bit pedantic, you really need to make sure the car is on very level surface...
and then swap the rear coilovers left and right to confirm that they’re at fault.
Yes- will do a proper test at the weekend in a car park nearby

Manny's SS1 1600

did you put the bolts back that hold the inner wing to the floor of the boot front corners? (or might been rivets) mine are M5 SS as easier to remove etc no bolts/fasteners allows the edge of outer wing to 'flap aboot' or at least not sit 'neatly' you can adjust the shut lines quite a bit depending...

Good day,

one ( possible) reason ...the rear shocks have mounting holes that are not equidistant from the spring collar ..would that make a difference - i only removed the one shock but did not compare the orientation , will pop out in a bit ...being lazy at the moment..

I'd take out the boot liner then you can see just about everything on both sides including the frame inner wing liners etc and compare sides ,it takes about an hour to remove it but well worth it for ease of restoration :wink: i took boot liner previously when the tank was refurbed and it's just dr...
