Easy enough to add caster with a modified P-bush - move the rear of the wishbone outwards, which given the front wishbone bush doesn't move would push the balljoint and thus hub forwards slightly. Given that the strut top position doesn't change, the angle of the strut changes, thus altering the caster.

If you look at the picture on the Powerflex site you can see that the hole on the P-bush is offset to enable this.

That makes sense tbf, guess the ebay seller I bought mine from can't even copy and paste lol. I imagine it's because you're pushing out the rear pivot point, pivoting around the front pivot point, therefore the balljoint is moved forward a tad and increasing the rake angle of the strut aka castor.

Fitted the vibratechnics engine mount...

Well its all in the name really, it vibrates like a good'n!

Couldnt hack it this was as a daily driver, will put a few miles on it and see if it loosens up.

If not will be for sale for anyone whos interested! The gear changes are fantastic but with the car being a daily/in traffic a lot I couldnt do it im afraid.

It should ease up a little in a few hundred miles but personally I'm never a fan of solid mounts on diesels.

Its great once I get going, the vibrations can be lived with. Otherwise it's a big nono, fingers crossed its fine, would be annoying to pay for an 'experiment'

the engine mount has eased up a bit but the dash vibrating is a bit much for me personally.

Took the car a drive up the coast roads a week or so ago, she done me proud Smile was a nice enjoyable drive.

So a quick wash later, i then decided to give it a bit of a detail too due to the good weather, will maybe lower it this weekend, im tempted to get it done sooner rather than later.

Bit of pic whoring....

Yeah its on coils and 50 profiles at the front, so its lower than it looks at the front.

Back is on 55 profiles and not lowered yet so is quite high in comparison.

Want 50s on the rear and 2 nicks then wind the front down to match Smile

May aswell update this a bit more.

Standard engine mount is back in, over the mooon! Its like a different car to drive. Biggest waste of 30 quid ive had yet.

Woke up sunday and went to drive it, big clunk followed by a lot of clunking...

Bottom small bolt had come loose and put a lot of stress on the p bush.

Not surprised it snapped, new replacements in on warranty.

What engine mount you have in it before?

Had a vibratechnics lower/rear mount.

its a bit fubar'd from taking it out, but was too solid for my liking on a diesel car. Was nice once the csr got moving, but even low revs cruising it was causing the cabin to shake itself to bits.

Prefer the extra bit of movement and smooth everyday driving over it.

There really is no worse thing you can do to a diesel 306 than fit anything but a standard lower mount in the standard configuration, anything stiffer ruins the car

Anyone got any 'to do's' before FCS?

Have a little list myself but any checks to make etc would be good!

1. Is it running? If so, pack all the spares as you're obviously due a break-down.
