im pleased with the handling although on rough roads its tiresome and feels like your teeth may fall out but to be fair im talking really rough northern B roads here.. not your modern b roads that the rest of civilisation gets

Car looks great, can i ask what colour were the springs supplied with your Koni kit. I had Yellow Apex ones and the car sat so low it was touching the wheel arch liners. I had to take it off. I have since been told that it luck of the draw which springs you get...!

Let me know as im really interested as i want to get the kit.



Thanks

hi m8,

the colour of the springs are Red. apart from a bit of initial paranoia when i thought it was scrubbing for the first mile over a few speed bumps since then i havent been able to hit the arches since. i run it on its lowest setting so as to retain ome ride comfort although my bro is really interested in the higher settings and has convinced me to play around this weekend. Its really hard at first but not actually uncomfortable probably due to the great seats in the 172. i have noticed though after a few hundred miles the setup eases off a bit and doesnt hammer you over speed bumps like when i had just the eibach prolines on. its settled down to add more comfort must have been really tight when new but its nigh on perfect now.

one word. im not sure if because the understeer is reduced that the outside of the tyre is getting more wear my tyres were needing a replacement anyway but i was shocked at how much tread had vanished i have been trying the kit out though ;).

Please would be great as i have been told Apex lower the most but it caused a problem on my car.

One last thing on the rear dampers did you get new rubber topmounts and washers as i also noticed the Koni ones (damper rods)were bigger than the renault ones and would not fit.

Your help would be great as im have real problems.

Evo Gone this is where i got mine from and its the same page aswell so same kit as mine... dunno if its worth investigating the coilover koni kits or other kits on this website as they seem to have good prices. its just i couldnt stretch to coilovers or i probably would have. still im happy with what i have.
