Koni and HR lowering springs- spring not centred

Recommended Posts

Very recently swapped out my original suspension for some new Koni TA's and HR springs. Purchased new early top spring caps from Vw Heritage as I had the later smaller version fitted. It all went together fairly easily and straight forward.


Decided to change the ball joints for new ones whilst i have it on axle stands. Noticed when on full lock to the right the front spring (R/H side)isnt centred and is more resting against the rod. Not sure if it will sort itself out when I lower it and transfer the rest of the weight onto the spring. I presumed it would stay central.


Anyone else had similar issues, or know of possible solution. Its all back together, torqued using figures from the Bentley manual.


Lastly any recommendations on a good garage in the Darlington/Middlesboro area for full geometry set up? Willing to travel 30-40 miles for someone who knows Vw's.
