Hello,

i'm still struggling a bit to understand the front suspension adjustment block and how it actually stays on the car?
As far as I can see it just slides in from the end over the splined bar, bit there is nothing to prevent it from working its way back out of it?

There is a circlips which is basically preventing the bar to slide out, but nothing which really attaches the block to this bar?

The circlips is there indeed, but would not prevent the cap from sliding towards the back of the car.
Just hoping indeed the tension will keep it all together (even on cobblestone roads etc)Smile

Thanks!
