i was thinking of getting coilovers however opted for a front anti roll bar instead as i already have lowering springs on, just wondered what size droplinks you think would best fit onto the front any suggestions ????
I was wondering this to mate I found if you use the nut that came with the springs to bolt it altogether then the bearing didn't fit over the nut. So I saw I diagram online which showed it as going the purple cap then the bearing then the top mount then the threaded bush. Then onto the carthen the top hat thing then locking nut. I don't know if this is right or not as I've not put it on the car yet. Not bolted them together yet but have done it how I said. Purple cap bearing top mount then threaded bush. Only done it up finger tight at the mo but it seems ok like that bearing moves freely enough. Will torque it up soon and get them on the car and see how it goes.I can i just ask a question, you'll have to bear with me if it doesnt make sense but i'll try to expalin best i can lol.
When you've dismanteled the front coilover to take the 2 rubber stops out, you re-assemble the coilover and out the purple top cap on, do you need to use the original nut provided to secure the purple top cover down or do you just use the threaded bush that fastenes the top mount to secure it all?
Also do you tighten the entire setup (top mount, threaded bush etc) all the way down to the bottom of the thread on the coilover?
Does that make sense?
i buyed fk street coilovers and droped car abaut 50mm but thats all thats possible before changing front anti roll barLOWERING 2001 LEON CUPRA ON FK COILOVERS HELP...
Ok so ive got a mk1 2001 Leon Cupra . I've just recently started to do some subtle mods to it that i've been wanting to do for ages! I've acquired myself a set of 18" BBS CH REPS on stretched 40 profile tyres and they have set the car off a treat!! Next on the list is obviously getting them rims sitting nicely in the arches!! So i've found a set of coilvers online for like 180 odd quid which look ok. However i think i'm right in saying that the 1m leons are the exact same chassis as the mk4 Golfs? Meaning that when putting the coilovers on i can only go down 40mm before the front driveshafts get in the way? I've been told that gettin an Audi TT front ARB will cure this and allow me to go down to like 60mm?? So basically what im asking is to be able to drop 60mm on coils do i need to buy a TT ARB? If so which sort? If not do i need to get the coil kit with the adjustable drop links? or just the standard kit and new ARB??
