[DML] Re: Eibach springs/shock set



Hi

Whilst on this subject,I would urge anyone to check their car should 
it looked to have been lowered at anytime in the past, the cut and 
swap method is certainly not the sort of procedure anyone wants to 
carry out or continue to use on their car. On one particular car i 
have recently looked at this had cut shocks on both the front and the 
rear, not a bad job was done on the 'face of it' but with the cut end 
sited at the top over the last ten years or so, they has 
been 'digging' into the top rubber bushings. In one case almost all 
the way through it.

This undoutably caused further strain on the steering rack and 
suspension components in general (with the tie rods in need of 
replacement)
  
Kind Regards
