Default Anyone close to Bangor (co down)

Hi All,

Anyone live close to Bangor/Holywood/Newtownards that has a Hawkeye with uprated suspension. Looking to get a feel for ride comfort before I decide on replacements .

Don't bother coilovers are a waste of time on our roads. Ask 2pot for the best combination.

Already have and with it being wide track seems there a variety of issue..mainlt no replacement front struts unless buy OEM at a fortune.

Wanted to refresh the full set but main issue is the knocking rear. Will get my mechanic to check the fronts and if a decent life left I'll go the kyb rears and just replace the front springs

had bc's in my bug and my hawk and will be getting another set for my hatch without question. If you want something a little more compliant the pedders kits are really good too and much less faffing about.

Peddlers for the wide track have major issues so won't go near them
