    Well first few lessons have gone well! But I have a leaf spring question.

    In the manual it mentions shackle wind up but I have no idea. Our 109 is sitting much lower on the passenger side and I wondered if this could account for that or maybe the springs are fitted to the wrong sides. I can't find any numbers stamped on them and by the look I'd say they're original but I know previous owner had them off to replace bushes. It makes sharp right hand corners a bit interesting! Any advice gratefully received
    Matt.

    Now you said that I immediately want to check out the AG section. .......
    Our 109 is fully functional but a rolling resto so which section would you recommend?
