Suspension difference between Clio 80bhp and 100bhp
An odd question but hopefully someone with good Clio experience can answer this. I have a 04 Clio 1.5 100, my dad has a 04 Clio 1.5 80....since we got them around the same time he has complained that his had a firmer ride than mine, and on both visual inspection and measuring the clearance from the front wheel to the arch, his car is certainly lower to the ground at the front than mine. This has come to a head for him a few days ago when he tore the
sump on a rock pulling over to the verge of a road, on inspection the mechanic swears the car looks to be set up as it was first day, he can't adjust the suspension so suspects it is as it should be.
So can anyone confirm this, would too such similar cars be setup so differently, is it possible the mechanic is missing something?
Oh and also, wheres a good online retailer that I could price a replacement sump on, tried gsf and euro parts and they don't list them...
