Posting on behalf of my girlfriends car.. 2000 2.0 Di 16v LS
She had a 60mm drop on standard shocks.. and they absolutely nailed them.. so much so, when I removed the leg yesterday and spring literally fell out of the shock! The insides of both her front tyres when completely shredded! So dangerous and I've never seen anything like it!
Yesterday I fitted brand new Raceland.. went on easy.. whether it's right or wrong.. I used the top rubber mount from the standard leg with the coilover's.. also fitted new driveshaft.. all this to try and find the annoying rumbling noise.. and it wasnt till I bolted the wheel back on I noticed play in the hub..
Suspect wheel bearing? Would anyone agree with that?
Fitting the new front struts has thrown the steering out completely.. which I cant really understand because I havent adjusted the track rod ends.. so I'm think the camber must be really really out.. how do I adjust this, or have it adjusted?
I told her to put the suspension back to standard because I'm annoyed sorting out this stuff.. but I she is admiment she wants her car really low!
So after this long post.. to conclude..
Rumbling noise.. and wobbly wheel.. wheel bearing?
Steering well out, and extreme inside wear on tyres.. camber out?
Hopefully someone can help..
