The M44 Massive

- 1.9 16v M44
and here is the result..
looks much better IMO than the pepper pots that were on it, the set up is is square with 225/45/17 all round maxxi victra ma-z1 on the rear and bridgestone potenza'a on the front all part worns with 7-8mm of tread balance and fitted for £90!...handling and grip is much improved and I really cannot get the back to step out at all...even in the wet its very planted and much more "chuckable"....I still have a slight difference in ride height as before, it is slightly lower driver side rear, but not as bad as I first though....an interesting piece of info I discovered after some research.....
the handbrake when engaged can "jack up" one side of the vehicle making it look lopsided from the rear, so I put the car on some flat level ground and disengaged the handbrake and had a look and right enough the disparity from left to right was almost gone..its very minimal (about 1cm) and I suspect will be ironed out with replacement coil springs.
next on the list is water pump replacement and seat bushes...(will be in touch aceman)
and have some powerflex bushes going on the wishbones in the next week or so..
