That's low James! Anything else rubbing apart from your arse  ;D

Can you adjust your rears without removing the rear wheel?

You kinda can but it's a pain, it's easier to get the adjusters out and do it that way. Will be having a go at it in the morning. Either raising it up slightly or maybe taking the bump stops out altogether.

Yes it's low :) but no nothing rubs, just thump thud thump thud over bumps.

 ;D Love adjustable suspension, especially if you can adjust the damping too. What are you running on your car?

Cheap and cheerful FK coilovers, for the price can't fault them. Hard as hell but the big question is how long will they last, only time will tel.

Yesterday I sealed the Abarth Winter Kit - I realised just before I started that my Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour bottle had broken and leaked everywhere so had to revert to using C2 instead...

Today I fitted them - pictures to come tomorrow as I finished by torch light :(
