    Coilover problem

    Right guys ive had these on the car (mk4) for a while now and are currently set about half way i want to wind them all the way down but the adjusting nuts wont go past the top of the droplink, they catch on the very top.

    Any ideas why and a way round it ?

    The only way Im aware of is some people cut the brackets off for the drop link and weld back on them further down. Then using adjustable links instead of the standard versions.

    This is a problem I have with my cheap JOM coilovers.
