Sounds like you may have a little too much oil in your shocks Chris...

Just the opposite, I think.

Of course, he might have "over muscled" the shock caps.
Remember, this is the guy who uses just a screwdriver to get them thar screws in.
AMG and I had to grease 'em.

Well, I do 'em up pretty tight . . it's hard to hang on to the little beggers.
Remember tight for me might be pretty loose to you, Mr. Muscles.

But the "O" rings in the adjusters are tight because they are new. I lubricate the "O" rings, so I can adjust with a thumb only.

Manti would suggest KY, I'm sure.

three places huh...... ok that would be 2.600 mm then.


hey,

hope this post is technical enough not to be considered "rubbish" by some, but then again, someone's experience with his own car in his own track is totally rubbish to me. i guess i should complain about it some day.
