[DML] Re: Coil spring question



Hi

Well its funny you should say that because it was only recently on a 
couple of cars that had the same problem this was found to be caused 
by the spring itself and it 'orientation' in the lower control arm. 
In both cases this was solved by slightly recompressing the spring 
and rotating it so that the lower 'cut' end faced towards the middle 
of the car rather than facing outward. It was the 'cut' end that was 
riding slightly over the lower control arm retaining 'cup' . Give 
this a go and let us know the outcome :)

Kind Regards
