    Seemed to dial-out a lot of understeer on turn in at speed, such as coming off tight curving motorway slip roads etc, well worth the money. You initially notice the bumps more, but soon goes away. Just to note that the DC5 rear ARB is the same fitment as the EP3 (mine's 2nd hand from a DC5).

    Clunking - funny you should mention that, had a couple at low speed tight turns this morning that I'd not noticed before

    oh i see, sounds good, thanks for the info mate, cant wait to get mine now
    yeah as long as the overall ride comfort and quality is not effected to much! i guess being a bit stiffer over bumps is not much of a negative when looking at the good points.

    clunking hope it does not do this lol could it be loose somewhere?

    its only very rarely, nothing to worry about. to me it feels how a dc2 feels on turn in obviously nowhere near as good as a teg but similar feel to it.

    Fine on the way home - no more clunking - first time I had heard it yestrday in a few years. Mine also has Spoon progressive springs on with 25mm drop, so probably puts a bit more stress on the ARB. I also have a fast road setup and adjustable rear camber arms, so the handling is brilliant now
