Wheel Nuts

Yesterday, 10:57 AM

I have put Oz alloys on my fiesta but the orginal wheel nuts are ruining the alloys and a garage said that the tapered ones are wrong for these alloys. But never suggested correct ones.
Should I use flat or Radius ones. Which are best?

Shocks

30 July 2015 - 01:20 PM

Fiesta zetec s tdci
Put new shocks,springs and top mounts but car sits a lot lower than before not much room from wheel arch to wheel.
Has developed a click noise when moving off but not when turning sounds like metal noise.
Had new drop links, poly arb bushes.
All ball joints seem ok with no play.
Frustrating now.

Wheel Wobble At High Speed

01 May 2015 - 12:00 PM

Fiesta zetec s tdci 2007

I have wheel wobble at 70+ mph .
I've changed anti roll bar bushes, had wheels balanced on new alloys.
Had tracking done, replaced track rod ends and inner tie rods.
Replaced nearside drive shaft but still shaking.
Anyone else had similar problems and cure.

Fiesta Alloys Bending

Fiesta alloys are rubbish ended up buying after market ones.
Ford need to address this .
Anyone else had issues with their alloys not being up to the job.
All four of mine out of shape and not even hit kerbs.
