      I set the preload with the struts on the car today. I put the lower perch hand tight, tightened the locking ring up to the perch and then added one spanner width of preload (approximately 4-5mm)...

      I'll try adding some preload to see if that helps. Thanks for the reply!

      I'm not very low either so, hopefully preload helps.

      Are people having to run preload to stop their coils from clunking? I've checked and retightend the strut top and bearing 3-4 times because they keep sounding like they're loose but I haven't found...

      As much as I love my wagon, Foxes do not have much resale value. $3000 is ludicrous. At the same time though, the value of the car is amount someone is willing to spend to buy it.

      I can't...

      Oh, it is. I appreciate the thought though.

      I've literally gone through everything since I got it. I just have this nagging misfire code that keeps popping up that has no affect on driveability. I...

      I'll give injector cleaner a try. We have a road trip coming up this weekend so I can add some before we go.

      All parts were brand new when installed. Everything was Bosch (besides the coil).

      I just installed the Stealth mounts and removed the stock rubber hats per this thread and despite what I read, there is a definite change in NVH. It's not bad enough that I can't live with it, but if...

      Another vote of confidence on these coils. My only gripe is there isn't provisions to get a hex key on the front coils to properly tighten down the strut bearing and top hat.

      Thanks for the confirmation.

      So I can understand my car a little better, MK3's engine management seems stupid simple with very few sensors. How does it sense misfires on a single cylinder?

      1997 2.0 GTI misfire code.

      So, I was driving to work in a torrential downpour and hit a puddle. My car briefly ran rough and my CEL started flashing. It returned to normal and the CEL stayed on solid. No symptoms to speak of...
