Vibration ST225

Postby Oros1-WP » Thu Aug 10, 2017 2:59 pm

Hi gents i recently put in a H&R drop kit and new front shocks in my 2008 Focus ST. Since then theres a knocking noise when going through bumps and a vibration when driving over 100km/h. Any ideas what it could be or where i can go to have it checked in Cape Town??

for the knocking i would check you control arm bushes
you sure they tightned up all the nuts and bolts for the vibration? check your rims if they not buckled
