Had new king lows put in the beast today - the original sports suspension was shagged - and i must say, 500% improvement! 8-)

However, the place i took it to send it to a tyre center for a wheel alignment, and they sheared the little splines on the locknut key! (obviously by using too much torque on the rattelgun!) The guy just goes sorry bout that, and hands the car back! F**k. :x I made my unhappiness known. :evil:

Is it possible to buy replacement locknut keys for tickford mags...? ...and if so, how much will fraud root me for it....cant wait to hear the price on this one.

Just a tip. Record the new key number so you can get a replacement next time.

Make the BAS****DS pay for the replacement as they know you DONT use a rattlegun to take locknuts off :roll: :shock: :twisted: :twisted:
