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.

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.

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...
