Good afternoon VXers,

 

I am currently running refurbished Bilstein turbo suspension on my SC vx.  I fitted standard suspension as the car is only being used on roads.  
 

when I fitted them I believe the springs are original ones so they are going to be past there best ,  now the ride is very good however there is a little too much roll in corners.  I am thinking of getting some higher poundage ones from D Faulkner,    What would the suspension experts recommend.  
 

 

Thanks Chris.

Do springs wear out? Or do you mean you want completely new spring/damper units?

Springs wear out surely, given enough cycles...
