Well I thought it was about time I said hello.
I live in the east mids J28 M1, but born n bred in geordieland.

I get my 1st caddy next week once my cheque has cleared.
Its a van atm which will be decapitated with immediate effect, man its FUGLY, 1.6D in black, body work is sound apart from one of the rear arches which has a bit of bodge on it.
Its seems so heavy to steer but very light in a straigh line, he told me he had replaced the front shocks recently so I reckon he maybe has messed up the geometry? any other thoughts?

Well thats me, no doubt I will be asking stoopid Q`s but bare with me eh.

[/quote 1, Have you checked the tyre pressures?2,Lift the front of your caddy and make sure you can turn the steering wheel lock to lock and feel no tightness in the rack[if the rack self centres out of a corners it probably ok]if that is ok it must be your geometry as you said.Where the strut bolts to the hub you can adjust the camber and even if he did not adjust the trackrod ends this will also adjust the tracking so maybe the tracking and camber need to be reset.:)
