It looks strange seeing the swage line in the boot!

The camber is just about noticeable if you are used to seeing the wheels sit perfectly straight, looks good. Should be a positive mod if you can get back out on the track with it this year :)

Nearly September and only just done first trackday this year! got off to a bad start when ripped the exhaust off when loading it onto the trailer, which bent the center section, had t take it all 3 parts off straighten and put back on.

Once there car ran a dream, although its first time out since few mods over winter and lots of welding, new smaller fuel tank was fine with no fuel surge issues at all, as seen on video had some issue with getting wrong gears and a drive shaft gaiter come off only noticed when putting it on back on trailer
Tried new camera a Sony Bloggie good quality but realised should have set the camera on side so a tall narrow video!

done a track evening in the Fiesta Wednesday night at Snetterton, car went great only really got over taken by a race prepped M3, upset lots of others :lol:
developed an oil leak with a small puddle left on the pit garage floor, leak looks like from crankshaft seal coming out of gearbox bellhousing.
got to decide if worth stripping and rebuilding or just keep an eye on oil level and top up

Shame about the oil leak though

Had another track evening last week, went well to start but now oil leak definitely finished the evening early as clutch slipping. No choice but to take gearbox out and do oil seal.
Only a quick video as battery went flat

busy bank holiday weekend, gearbox and sump off to find source of oil leak which was from the sump gasket in the end not crank oil seal but changed it anyway while it was all apart, clutch still looked ok all back together again and running.
Laying on a gravel drive changing gearboxes is no fun at all especially when wont line up!

£120 for fronts £70 for rears, with all new seals and piston rods and postage back but depends on actual condition I think.
I had to clean and paint them though, appear as good as new now. Total cost me £270 including the original purchase of the knackered set of ebay

I find that AVO are really good with rebuilding/repairing their coilovers, and not over priced either. I've had both my fronts done so far, just need to do the rears too.

Price is dependant on what you want done though I believe, but either way they will renew the seals ect while stripping them down.

They look nice, now just to try keep them clean :)
