  2. Morning, Going to get my wheels balanced and tracking sorted due to a wheel wobble around 55mph Tracking wise what am I best asking the garage to set it up to? Car is currently lowered on rear with de cambered spring, and front is on capri legs (coil over tops on) with roller top mounts lowered to match the rear, twin cam antiroll back etc if that's makes a difference? Any advice is great - Thanks

  13. Cheers need to take another look, ive tried another set of hubs with same issue. they where 2nd hand though so possible issue still. This is the video, not the best i must admit, does it look like an issue, maybe not be able to tell from this to be fair http://s732.photobucket.com/user/seaneylad/media/Track%20day/VIDEO0013.mp4.html
  14. Yeah i took mine off and put new stainless pistons in that i got via eBay, as whn i bought the car it has sat around the the surface rust on the piston stopped them working as well. since the rebuild they are spot on, stops better than 53 plate vw
  15. I use Princess 4 pots, i think they are spot on! Alot of people dont use them as they do weight a tonne! came on the car and have been good to me on road and occasion track with vented and drilled discs
