    Suspension fitted

    Finally got my Spax suspension kit fitted the other day. It corners better but I haven't tried adjusting the dampers yet to see if it changes much. It doesn't look like it's lowered 35mm (or maybe it was supposed to be 40), but am i right in thinking that it lowers a bit more over the first few days?

    yeh it's a MK3 1.8 16v sport. I though I read a few months back that they bed after a certain amount of time. Looks so much better without a big gap in the wheel arch.

    How do you find your spax? I mean I've always had a knock from mine since they were fitted.
    Know what you mean about the handleing though and the way the back tyres now sit in the arch..... mmmmmmmmmm

    How do you find your Spax? Seems a simple question to me lol. It means, how do you rate your Spax ... meaning what do you think of them after they have been fitted and when you are driving.

    Oh right! Yeh it does seem to habndle a lot better around corners although the boot makes a noise a lot now so I might adjust the rear dampers to a bit softer, unless anyone knows of a way to stop the boot making so much noise?
