COILOVER PROBLEMS

Postby GAJ1 » Mon Jun 16, 2014 7:23 pm

I'm in the process of fitting front coilovers to the Compact and we have encountered a problem. Wound to the lowest setting (to get the spring on) the adjusting ring fouls the wheel rim. When adjusted up 35mm higher the tyre fouls the spring. Is this normal? do you have to fit longer bolts & spacers to offset the wheel.

These are Spax RSX with the standard spring with the shocker and fitting standard BMW Rims.

No worries. I have just found the hand book online and it says I (may) need spacers min thickness 5mm. Thanks for letting me know beforehand!!
