Have you done the knocking test in a car park to test the cv's?

Full lock one way then the other, accelerate, does it knock.....

Ohhhhh you don't understand how much it knocks :lol:

It's terrible, literally put any pressure on the wheel turning right and it vibrates the car like mad, even going down the road over like little bumps and hilly bits when there is pressure being put down on it from when the weight of the car moves down, you feel the vibration like mad lol.

I think it's safe to say I need a new cv joint. I will probably rip it all apart tuesday afternoon and see how much damage I've done lol :(

Mostly Follow what i see on Facebook Danny but you've had some bad luck so i feel for you, moment this sort of thing happens on the Focus is the day i die as £990 will be needed for new uprated Driveshafts!!

Hopefully you'll have more luck in the future :)

No update as of yet with regards to the CV joint/vibration problem. I will have to have a look next week and try get it sorted. Also while doing that, I will probably attend to the bit of rust that's on the front wing and door, and also other small bits.

I will also be doing more painting/undersealing of arches and stuff because they haven't been done in about 6 months and I like to think I'm OCD with that :D

I also want to space the rear wheels out (more) because they look lost in the arches too. It needs more stance :)

So that's that..

However, I did take a couple of random pictures of the car seeing as I haven't really taken many recently. I honestly miss the splitter, it just looks so boring without it, and really high :lol:

So I will get another one of them along with something else I have seen on ebay soon.

Cheers guys :D

The other one got ripped off Ben, then someone drove over it and smashed it up :lol:

Nah they are spaced out a very small amount, think only like 5mm, which is literally nothing. But that's only to clear the coilover height adjustment ring because it would rub on the tyre being in the position it's in. I'm going to make it a project to get some bespoke hub spacers made either by a local company, or by myself after I've sorted Chris' coilovers for him - which I'm hoping will be next week with any luck.
