Not had any issues since fitting them in the Spring, but then again I'm driving a TCE not an RS so nowhere near as much power at the wheels and I don't try and drive it like it's an RS. If I disappear from the forum then you know what has happened - check the ditches around Coventry.
I had them on the car when I purchased it, they literally tried to kill me every time it rained, it wasnt even when gunning it, sometimes just cruising along at 40mph round a bend of sorts and the cars sliding all over haha.
Sunday - fitted new 'plain plates' on, I did buy a set a couple of years ago but never put them on, when I took the plastic off recently they'd gone slightly weird, so I got a new set.
They were cheaper than the crappy looking ones the dickwad in the shop wanted to sell me last week. Happy days!
Changed the back box for an upcoming MOT on the Mondeo ST which was a piece of piss.
Dropped of the kerb ramps and ping, snapped front spring. Tried changing that and sheared the pinch bolt in the strut/hub carrier. Used hub now required.
Both tie rods also needed replacing.
On closer inspection both bottom ball joints had very slight tears and as they are rivited in the whole lower arm needed to come out. Gets better as you need to lower the subframe to get the ball joint out the hubs and rear bush bolt out.
