Hey Benn, how all the suspension upgrade going ??

on my setup i am running about the same as you are proposing but about 2mm toe in on the front, this is due to not have some RCA (roll centre adjusters) (AKA bump steer correctors) as i found mine was over steering to a degree when on hard lock and going over a bump. make sure your aligner test this by pulling down on the front end and see where the toe gets to under load. mine came back to about 0mm

my car is in so many pieces at the moment, engine out and fixing some small oil leaks, diff is next on the list, keen to get out after winter for some catch up and cruising :D

Cheers :tu: I got it out for the first time in about a month for a rotor cruise up to Strathalbyn. Was a great turnout of old schoolers

Hey Matt, I am just waiting on KMac to send my bar....apparently they have a bit of backlog.....

Have new ball joints, tie rods, bushes etc all lined up ready to go. Would have been nice to have had it all in for the weekend as we went on some winding great roads, but was a good drive regardless. Hoping to pull it all apart in the next couple of weeks and get it done and aligned. I want it back on the road pretty quick as I am really enjoying driving it....and the rotary scene in SA seems to have come back to life!

Will be good to have yours back out and amongst it!!
