New Front Shocks

Recommended Posts

Ford fiesta zetec s tdci mk6

Just changed front shocks, springs and top mounts but it now seems very low on car , can't get hand in between tyre and wheel

arch also got a click noise when moving off but not when steering.

Car has got new drop links, uprated poly ARB bushes,

Everything else looks ok no movement on ball joints.

if you lowered it too much you probably need a steering limiter, but the initially pull off click could just be the ABS self test, or rusted brakes?

I never lowered it just new shocks and springs.

Just fitted ebc red stuff brake pads so nothing rusty.

It seems to have started making a noise on start up and switch off so I'm suspecting a gearbox / engine mount.

Bottom one already replaced about 3 months ago as was perished.

Will look at nearside one as seems like too much play on engine.

Thanks anyway

Are the springs definitely the right ones? It should sit slightly higher not lower for a short period.

They were slightly longer than the originals but still had same amounts of coils and they said they were for my car on the box.

Just thought they would be longer with them being new.

The shocks are Kyb and the springs are sachs

Just don't know why they are sitting low.
