Re: front springs Question

Feel free to rant all you like Doggy :cheesy: To be fair at least 25% of caravaners shouldn't be allowed to tow one But thinking about it probably more like 33% of road users should have their licence removed :supafrisk: Yeah know what you mean about the 406, I very nearly sold the lot this year & b...

Just all n...

Re: front springs Question

You'll find that the eibachs are slightly stiffer anyway
& by the nature of lowering it you are increasing the spring rate.

Don't forget to change your dampers while your in there & your strut top bearings at the minimum.

The 406 sits that high as stock your get away with 30mm without it looking lowered If you prefer to tell the insurance, then surely ask them? There are plenty of spe...

Re: Type of oil

Wag, I did state in my post why, The Total is listed in the Peugeot handbook that came with the car & the reason for changing to Mobil one this year is because it's made using a much better base stock oil to start with & should help lower my oil temps when towing as it's better under high loads. I h...
