I have AST coilovers on my 6, now excuse the non technical lingo, but shouldnt the silver nut thing be central?




They are all at an angle evan the ones in the boot



With them all the same im presuming this is ok, just making sure :)

One other thing, my near side front has started creaking, i get the impression its the springs or shocks (same sort of noises you get when you havnt used the car in a long time) it only happens when moving and turning the wheel, but can only be heard at low speeds (only time i wish i didnt have the nur spec :D )
the coilovers are 8 months old, but have done less than 2000 miles.

Cheers for any help
Matt

As no one seams to have a clue i thought id let you know what the crack is with the above post, incase anyone else has the same problem :)

The plastic ring that goes between the helper spring and the main spring had sheared, causing all the tension to go directly onto the bearing in the top mount. This is why in the pictures they arent sitting straight. This has happened on all 4 dampners so its either got something to do with that mirror i broke the other week :( or they are a very weak part.
