    Matiz front strut set up

    I've ordered a set of these struts but instead of lowering the perch to drop it from 50mm to 80mm I'm thinking I'd be as well just getting -30mm lowering springs for the matiz struts and getting the 80mm drop that way, saves a lot of hassle rather than cutting and having to rewelding the perch...

    Matiz front strut set up

    Nice one thanks Frank. Looks smart and just the right sort of height I'd be after as well, just a straight swap and change the top hat/mount of the strut then yeah? Thanks man, that looks good and about the right height I'm after as well. I've got corsa b rear shocks and 2 cut coils but it's...

    K11 lower.control arm bush replacement

    As title suggests has anyone replaced these? I've ordered some febest ones and they have a metal sleeve on them which makes this the same diameter as the control arm and thus it won't fit. Would using a flap wheel suffice to bore out the control arm slightly to make the new bushing fit? Thanks...

    Lower trailing arm question

    Indeed it is. Just recognised the car after I realised you'd suggested same places and parts. Worst case I'll need to fork out for the new arms and another mot fee 😔..

    Lower trailing arm question

    Tried to remove the remaining part of the trailing arms on my replacement axle but the bolts where seized on to the inner sleeve so had to cut the bolt off with the grinder. I'm expecting to have to do the same when removing the old axle and want to 1) Know where I can get replacement bolts? 2)...

    Suspension upgrade

    I've no idea what's best tbh. There's people on the forum running various set ups so they'd be best to ask as I've yet to do it. I'll see what's available hopefully in the coming weeks and see where I go. I'm in need of a rear axle so will be getting the corsa b shocks and Alto springs and doing...

    Suspension upgrade

    Thanks for that frank, I'll keep an eye out in the coming weeks for a set. From what I've seen the Alto springs from 94-98 fit all around the Micra and the Ignis and Wagon R rears from the same era are better on the front, also rear Daewoo Matiz springs fit on the front. Not sure if the first...

    Drl lights and aftermarket tacho/rev counter questions

    Has anyone fitted these? As I can't find anything about them via the search function. Was looking to know how to wire these to come on when ignition is on and switch off when sidelights are switched on or would it be better just wiring to a switch on the dash? Also I've watched the install...
