    Fitted Eibachs today got problem

    I got my -30mm eibachs fitted today by my local garage.

    Now when i put my foot down the Traction Control Light and ABS light come on and stay on whilst driving. They go off next time I start up but then as soon as i start to accelerate hard they come back on

    Any idea what is up; I can't see anything about this in the manual?...

    Is the speedo working?

    Check to see they've hooked up the sensors on the hubs

    Look behind in the wheel arch, behind the wheel and see if there is a loose wire dangling about.

    Doing the front drivers side might be a good place to start - the passenger side sensor runs the speedo so that seems to be OK

    Did you have the tracking reset??
    If the tracking is far enough out it will cause the TC light to come on at high speeds.

    these lights have been off and on all weekend so Im going to get the tracking checked in the week.

    Another thing... Did people who fitted these find them quite bouncey when going over bumps in the road?... It is really quite bad...

    I know nothing about springs but can they be fitted the wrong way around or anything like that?..

    Lowered srpings do tend to be bouncier - less suspension travel so the car will rock over lumps in the road, where it would have soaked them up in the suspension before.

    As long as you have decent dampers, it'll recover fine. The different suspension behavior is wierd at first, but you'll get used to it.
