Well after all the searching I've ended up going with KW Variant 1s plus the adjustable KW Tie Arms. It's more than I really wanted to spend but what you gonna do.

Booked into Star Performance in Kircaldy on the 23rd August. Can't wait.

One problem though I've screwed up. My MOT is out tomorrow (I thought it was next month) and I don't think she will pass with the "split" rear springs. Is there anything I can do? It's a 250 mile journey for me to get to them.

How about telling the MOT test station and take your reciept with you to say that you have got KW Variant suspension and the spring has just snapped on the WAY to the testing station, lol.

Think it will fail.

You should have said before and I'd have lent you an original spring for your test.

Welcome to the club to the yellow spring club - well soon anyway.

If that offer is still open khutula don't suppose you have 2 rear springs as both have gone. I'll obviously pay for all postage

Yep no worries as long as you can send them back when you have the KWs fitted - no problem at all. I have all my original springs.

Easy fix,

Take if for its MOT to which it will fail, they will then give you a notice to fix the car.

That will give you 25 days (I think may be more) to have the work carried out, but the notice will still cover you to drive about. Get the KW's fitted and go back in for your retest.

Cheers
Matt

Matt, you sure about that?

I've actually just been to see my local friendly MOT tester and shown him this picture to see what he thinks. He said he would have a look before he passed or failed it

I'm going to see him in a couple of hours after he has fitted 2 new tyres for me. The R32 is on the drive up on blocks at the moment.

Tony I'll drop you a PM later after I have spoken to him.

I did think about the Eibachs but decided on the KWs.

Did you get adjustable arms fitted as well?
