new to the forum not sure how it works but here goes, got a mk2 fez with some big ol' 185 60 14s of a capri or summat, they look mint but whack the rear guards constantly with more than a fly or a moth sat in the back. the fronts are sound now got some FKs for a corsa but ive tried afew different springs in the back and their all too soft, haven't mucked about with anything else at the back but if anyone could point me towards some rite hard springs or any way of getting the back stiffened up that would be great. oh and cheaper the better. 

 

cheers, :biggrin: charlie

well teh biggest issue is the tyres are too big for the car. that aside, i went to mechanics college with a lad that had a mk1 fiesta (the mk2 is basically a facelifted version) and he put mk2 escort springs in the front and possibly the same springs in the back too. the ride was terrible it was too hard.

personally, depending on free length id try something like from the rear of a bigger/heavier car. possibly Sierra or Granada Estate ones could work well. without the right sized tyres, it will be an element of trial and error to get right

Mk2 XR2 models had the arches rolled from the factory because the wheels caught, even with 185/60/R13s fitted (with a full load in the rear), might be worth doing that as a starting point if yours is a base spec
