Welcome to the club Roly,
I got my adjustables fitted today and boy does it look good, it's now 50mm lower at the back and 55-60mm at the front, the ride quality is rather good for what is quite a large drop in height.
I'll post some pics A.S.A.P

Whats wrong with Spax ?
This is wierd and I agree with you, you shouldnot have to bodge a Â£600 kit. What I dont understand is how it happened, if the spring sits in the top and bottom spring seats it is away from the strut body - sounds like you had the wrong spring seats. I have an RSX hit on my car, with changed poundage springs but same diameter and length as stock, and it is fine - there is some slight knocking at low speeds when the steering is turned full lock but this is the spring hopping round on its seat - only happens very rarely. I actually blew one of the oil seals at Blyton recently (after hitting a grass verge rather fast) and they replaced the strut for Â£100 - good value I would say.Originally posted by roly

the strut and spring were making contact whilst driving, i had camber, tracking, hight all adjusted X amount of times over 4 days and still couldn't stop the knocking. after a call 2 spax technical i was told 2 put washers between the top mount and strut housing to re-align the top mount.
now having just spent Â£600 on this kit i didn't expect to have to do this, to be honest it sounded like a bit of a bodge to me. so the kit went back and got replaced with the H&R kit.
personally i have always run spax on all my cars and found them very good but it wasn't to be this time round.
