    HELP!! Need U-bolts for TE61 rear axle.

    Someone help me out please!
    I've lowered the front of my TE61 by 25mm with a set of King Springs.
    Now the rear obviously needs to come down by a similar amount to prevent her from struting her arse in the air!! :shock: :lol:
    So far I've bought two different sets of U-bolts which I was promised would suit my TE61, but sadly neither did.
    Could someone please point me in the direction of a suitable set of U-bolts that will lower the rear of my Trueno by about 25mm / 1 inch...??

    Take your old U bolts and bring them to a spring/suspension shop and they should be able to make you a set. That's what I did for my te38 .But that's only if you have access to a shop near you.

    or get someone to cut them and weld in a coupple of inches :lol:
    cant you u just take meassures of how wide they are and then go out and buy a similar set but just longer?
    you will also need a block to put between the axle and leaf..

    this is what I did. search your area for a local spring shop. bring your old ones and tell em to make longer ones. mine cost ~$40 iirc.

    It's good advice, and it's also exactly what I would have done, had I been back home in Denmark (or anywhere in Europe for that matter).
    But sadly here in Hong Kong I honestly haven't got the foggiest idea of where to go! I don't doubt that such a shop exsist somewhere in Hong Kong. But not being local and also not speaking Cantonese is at times a challenge...
    Therefore buying a readymade kit would just simplify my life.

    make some tech drawings... then contact one of the companies you said you know who can do this and then have them shipped to you

    Good point.
    I am actually heading back to Denmark for vacation in a few days.
    I'll see if I can sort anything out while there...
