Hi;

fitted at home by myself, simply jack the car, remove road wheels,drop lower suspension arm then follow simple instructions as per your vehicle and re-assemble suspension and wheels etc, total time taken 90 mins.

We live on what I'd say is a 'cut through' road near a caravan storage place, and also the road is good for access onto the dual carriage ways for the A1 and A19...

Since Friday (our school break up day), we've seen all kinds of 'van / car / 4x4 combos going past with the jockey wheel nearly scraping the road...

I keep asking now since this thread, bad combo, poor loading or soft springs...????

-------------
Where Next....?

Soft springs I suspect, I bought my spring assistors from a Camping/Motor Factor shop and they sell loads,especially for newer vehicles.

Probably bad loading. After all 75kg is equivalent to just one person sitting in the back of the car. A full tank of fuel weighs 40kg. One does not notice the back of the car drop down a lot when filling up.

This thread is starting to sound like the 'Glad I bought an older caravan' thread....

Where someone has said 'They don't build them like they used to....'
