    how can you eliminate understeer? SLOW DOWN!!

    better tyres might help? and maybe better shocks?

    courtenay sell them as do most places

    theres how-to's all over the net - from whiteline themselves or even one on here.

    Mk4/Mk5 are identical so may find one listed for the mk4 but it will fit!

    BHR75 is the fixed one
    BHR75X is the adjustable one

    I have the fixed (it still offers a little bit of adjustment) but just have it on the stiffest setting and never adjusted it - why bother!
