Rear shockers rubbing.
« on: August 15, 2010, 19:03:31 »
I have a procomp 3" lift on my Jimny and after taking it for the MOT yesterday the garage says that the rear springs are rubbing against the shockers and will wear through them eventually if I don't do something, anybody else had this problem and if so how do I cure it ?.
Back into the fold after 6 months without a 4x4.

Yes mate, I just used some washers to space the shockers away from the springs.
