Coilovers

Hi,
Been reading on here and it seems that the coilovers route seems to be Corsa coilovers, has anyone tried the C4 Picasso ones ??
The Corsa rear shocks are a no go and the C4 ones look like they'll fit ??
Any ideas
Cheers Greg

Which coilovers fitted front/Rear? If and did you manage to sell them or have you still got them? My van is desperate for some.

Re: Coilovers

I think my shocks or something are shot as I'm getting a clunking sound over bumps so now is a good time for me to upgrade to coilovers. What set did you go for in the end and what springs did you use on the back?
I have seen that a rear punto spring has very similar spec to qubo spring except its 50mm shorter which could work for lowering a bit.

Re: Coilovers

Sounds more like the 'broken spring' syndrome...or the 'top mount effect'..


I'd have thought elderly/tired shocks just bounce a whole lot more rather than clunking.

Re: Coilovers

What should I be looking for to diagnose it? It has got worse relatively quickly from first noticing it a month or so ago, and one time there was a PING sound.

Re: Coilovers

That does sound like a broken spring. Sometimes when you corner there's a clunking as the two pieces of spring interfere under load. Best way is either take a wheel off and look or feel the spring behind the wheel (prepare for scruffy hands!)
Replacement is quite a straightforward job for a garage but get both done together and ask them to change the top mounts at the same time. Not sure why you'd want coilovers but maybe they'd fit your requested suspension parts).

Re: Coilovers

To be honest I like working on it myself if I can, so I would probably replace the spring and strut myself. Maybe coilovers aren't the best option, but I have been looking for a way to improve the handling and lower a little.
Inner tie rods need doing as well which I'll get my mechanic to help with.
