Still need to tune them to the worst of Norfolk roads but gratifying to find in the short run that front now matches the back in ironing out most bumps. Car seems more chuckable as well with super sensitive steering.

Needless to say the second side was stripped and rebuilt in half the time of first although I did release spring tension with a jack. Would suggest it's ideally a two man job to replace using same method though. Bizarre that I did find a kingpin bump stop on second (offside). Left it out of rebuild for symmetry as definately not present on other side. Bump stop's on dampers with RS kit anyway.

Anyone want a pair of front adjustable AVO's, only 6000 miles from new innocent
