    i've contacted the venom motorsport today,explained the matter and he asked me for the picture,hows the spring is fitted.after i emailed it,he called me back and said the spring is upside down(you were ryt E36LISTER -).
    so i turned it over this afternoon and now the noise isnt that bad but its still there.and the strange thing that the adjuster got to be in the bottom.first,it doesnt sit there properly,second,how do you suppose to adjust it now?there is no way the spanners will go down in there.so you have to take the spring out every time you want to adjust the height.
    and the spring is completely compressed.is that ryt? that noise coming is like those bottom spring rings catching to upper ones.

    There is something not right your best bet is to take it to a garage that specialises in suspension and get them to take a look
    Surely the adjuster should be at the top so you can adjust it??

    Adjuster needs to be at the top of the spring not the bottom

    does anyone of you has got coilies fitted?how is it like on yours?cos if i put adjuster in the top,where it fits perfectly,the spring keeps scraping in to the walls of the wishbone.if i turn it uppside down,adjuster goes into the bottom where it doesnt fit well at all.and it cant be adjusted ,without taking the whole spring out.

    it looks as if the rear spring itself is to soft and the weight of the car is just compressing it way to easy
