    hottunning rear adjuster removal and modification tip

    Right i accept no liability for any accidents,breakages,death,car smashes etc etc for this blah blah blah due to this mod


    right how its usually setup at the rear




    right remove the adjusters and remove the bottom the bottom spindle only and then underneath the one left use black tape in our case and wrap around it a few times so its stops the adjuster moving around in the spring and cut the top mount rubber down so it sits inside the top



    As you can see in the final picture of what i mean by taping the threads so its not moving and you still retain the top mount rubber which you have modified and now instant lows without fear of springs moving about or bottoming out and smashing into the car body





    get stuck or dont understand something pm me and i shall talk you through it but heres a quick recap


    1.remove adjuster
    2.cut top-mount rubber down so it sits flush inside top of adjuster and remove bottom collar only of the two
    3.tape up 3/4 times round the remaining spindle collar
    4.check everythings tight and flush
    5.refit as per picture
    6.check,double check,triple check everythings tight and all bolts done up
    7.smoke a tab,grab a beer and admire your new lower rear end safe in the knowledge you did it and give yourself a pat on the back
