    Driver's seat creaking sound

    My driver's seat started creaking (popping) as I lean forward or back in my seat. The sound comes from the right lower side. Like a rivet got loose, or bushing worn out. Anybody had this issue before, or there is a TSB about this? I can't believe how many issues I have with this seat. First...

    Removing ball joint from control arm

    Eventually I will need to replace my ball joint and the tie rod end. The rubber boots are all cracked open. Anybody managed to replace the lower control arm ball joint? I would prefer doing that, since it is much cheaper. I have access to presses, at my workplace.

Now, I have...

    Aftermarket spring vs. coilover ride differences

    I have CS springs on my car right now, I had H&R Sport on my previous car, but I have never had a proper coilover setup. Somebody can explain it to me, what it would be the difference with a proper adjustable setup? It would ride smoother, less bouncy?
