    I got around to taking some photos, we had some sunshine today and for once it wasn't ruined by the rain!

    Hi 'the88g', can you get to the GTG @ Brooklands on 31st Jan? It's always nice to meet new members, especially those with impeccable vehicle taste :D

    Dang, that sounds awesome. I might have to pass on this occasion as I will be in Bucks Saturday night, but will see if I can be up early Sunday and get back to Surrey.

    Are you in Guildford? I work at the University of Surrey. Maybe you can take me for a ride in your CL sometime :D I think the ride comfort on mine is questionable and would like something to compare it to. Yesterday I had all my arms, ball joints and bushings checked and still I feel a knock in the steering.

    It is a strange combination of really smooth and yet still feeling vibration and knocks in the steering wheel and pedals.

    Hi,
    I need the front valve block cleaned and rebuilt on my CL500. Do you still carry out this procedure?

    Hi Kev01,

    I just read your post regarding the dropping of the front passenger side suspension and was wondering how you went about getting this fixed? I am experiencing the same issue and don't know where to start.

    Hello

    Thanks for the reply.

    I tried to send him an email, but the forum wouldn't allow me. Maybe due to the fact I'm a new member maybe?

    Anyone have an email address for crownhouse perhaps?

    Thanks

    He has less than 30 posts too, so he can’t recieve PM.

    Try messaging an Admin, and requesting if they can email him?

    As you know I had the work done by crownhouse and as such have his contact. I have emailed him to check the thread. Good luck mate :)

    Interested in how this turns out too.

    Think my ABC could do with an overhaul. Some dodgy handling going on at the rear of my CL500.

    Cheers

    Check your rear camber arms, very common issue with these!

    Good shout, I'll have a look at them before doing anything rash.

    Crownhouse to ArfanFarooq - do you copy?
    I've been told your 55 is limping.
    If I'm not contravening club rules - contact is simonadenle@gmail.com
