Re: alternative front coil springs for panda 4x4.

Yes, that is fine, I don't mind comfort in utility car.
I'll check in with few more pics after finished.

Re: alternative front coil springs for panda 4x4.

First coilover partially finished.
What concernes me is bending of coil. It is seated as it should be up and down.

Also, top bearing is hard to rotate by hand, I expected flawless smooth motion. All cleaned and regreased.

Can't compare with other side, as I can do only one side at a time, because of space problems.

Carry on, nothing wrong with the coil, will sattle down after few days.

Re: alternative front coil springs for panda 4x4.

Gained 4.5cm with felicia 10.7 wire. Perfectly fine. Won't touch rear for now.
I think still a bit too much camber even at max out position of top bolt- 4mm, but it might settle.

Second shock was still functional, and it has more rebound and less compression, than monroe shock.

Re: alternative front coil springs for panda 4x4.

hello, I rode the springs of the rover 25 in my panda, and now it was higher on one side about 1cm, is it because it still has not aligned the direction?

Hi, this problem is solved, i just turn the up bearing for other position and work fine.

Now the problem was wen i run back, the wells open and still with positive camber, if I run forward itís ok... can anyone help me?

Re: alternative front coil springs for panda 4x4.

Yes itís the toe/out. if the front of wheels are not straight pointing in towards the front simple method is set car on a very flat surface push backwards the tyre fiction is drawing down the spring. Use a 11 mm and 20 mm spanner to adjust off the steering tie rod equally each side untill the draw down is less try this a few Times by measuring Bonnet height say 3 - 4 mtrs apart
