Thread: Help, Lupo Suspension

  1. #1

    Help, Lupo Suspension

    Hi, we've bought our daughter a lupo, to learn in and drive once passed. It came with lowered suspension (adjustable lowering springs) which was far too low for our road (speedbumps). So we have put the original suspension back on. Now the car's steering is very light and pulling to the left with a judder on full lock. Also there seems to be some movement in the top mounts. Anyone know whats going on? Thanks in advance

    Judder on full lock and floaty feeling could well be the power steering pump on the way out however also consider the difference in camber/ tracking of changing the ride height, might well require wheel alignment/ tracking.
    Are the top mounts in good order? The Arosa bought for my eldest had them replaced not long before us buying it- its on an 02 plate
