My yr 2000 Superlight R has the front Bilstein front damper units fitted upside down and AFAIK has had since the car was built 22 years ago.
Yesterday a fellow Caterham owning friend was looking at them and suggested they had been fitted incorrectly and should be the right way up. He said only race dampers can be fitted upside down.
Car handles fine and presumably the previous 5 owners were happy with handling too. Car was built by a Caterham employee (Not Caterham) for the first owner.
Just keen to know what the truth is?
