Re: Drunk punto?

You put on weight recently?!!!!!

Seriously though, sure sounds like the suspension to me - couldn't the Fiat people see it was still leaning when they finished with it?! In short I don't know but good luck with it.

Re: Drunk punto?

lol no im a light bloke! the springs they fitted improved it slightly but they gave up on it saying "it's a common thing on all puntos"..... but ive seen some that dont list as much as mine! oh well took delivery of my new lowering springs today so hopefully they will help! (or make it worse we shal see....)

Re: Drunk punto?

Never seen any puntos with listing suspension,seen a few with blown rear dampers (mine are nearly gone), but never uneven. Sure a spring retainer hasn;t destorted or moved a few pegs?

Re: Drunk punto?

When im sat in the car I feel as though im tilted towards the passenger side.......I put it down to lack of seat support They really aren't the best :S

Is yours the Active model with basic seats??
