    Sump, any ideas ?

    Thanks for comments, I was led to believe that both Capri and Sierra sumps will not clear the cross member, as for budget perhaps I am living in the past but £250 for an RS2000 SUMP is a lot of money

    Coil Springs

    Thanks for all the interest and suggestions, glad I am not the only one with this problem perhaps the makers of these springs should start to shape the ends, have backed the locknut and this has helped, would love some Roller top mounts but will have to save my pocket money, when the struts are next out I will try other suggestions, thanks all

    Coil Springs

    I have not had the car on the road yet, but with car on its wheels when steering is turned you can here springs turning also when jacked up springs move, the springs are not loose in position, seems to be as I said the spring ends are not formed to locate in cups, thanks

    Coil Springs

    Advice needed, Having fitted 190lb -2 inch springs (Rally Design) to RS struts I am left with the problem of he spring turning on the top and lower cups, this seems to be due to the ends of the spring not being shaped to fit the cups, any advice, thanks
