    BTW - the eBay seller makes a proposal of FULL REFUND MY MONEY with his own PICKING UP of my bad coiovers, so this sounds very fair to me...

    maybe the ta one's are designed not to have shorter drop links.

    Yea, it looks like they have tried to fix the problem of the ARBs fouling by lifting the ARB mounts. Looks like it could have done with a thicker gauge or additional bracing.

    I've had TA-Technik coilovers on me car for about 10K now and not had any problems.

    They are also slightly different from the photos above...

    These are mines, pre-fitting of shorter droplinks ... I fitted shorter droplinks because the ARB was rubbing off the driveshaft.

    I'm reverting back to standard suspension though because the roads over my area etc are terrible ... so if any of you guys fancy selling your standard suspension setups I am interested in buying.

    Did you use shortened drop links with yours?
    The issue appears to be that these are designed for use with the standard (long) droplinks as they have their mounts higher to accomodate the lower chassis.

    ...neither noise during riding over bumps??? Mine are knocking so noisy in every f*** hole :-( What height You set-up? I tried all - from lowest to highest & still same.

    - Bended brackets was due to differences between TA-Technix and V-Maxx and wrong using of shorter droplinks.

    - And creaking was because ARB gets different position after lowering. I tried ride my car today without droplinks and creakink was gone! But still knocking...

    So I'll go back to my standard SEAT Sport suspension :banned:


    BTW: Where are You from fr-tdi? I would like to see Your susp. in real...

    Yours are the type which need the shorter droplinks, as they have the lower mounting positions.
    Glad yours were OK, as they're what I'm about to fit :)
