    Hey guys, fitted my GAZ coilovers which i had to wait 20 days for.

    i wasn't impressed with gaz on a friends car but there the only company i could find where you can specify spring rates.

    Now after fitting them after the wait for them to come, on droop ( no load ) The spring can move i'd say just over an inch..

    I think ok, that's not right but i took it for a drive and all i can hear is the spring moving around all over the place.

    Has anyone else had this problem? I'm going to fit helper springs which i hope will sort it, but how can a company supply a £700 set of suspension like this..
