    Rubber Coil Spring Mounts

    @AllTorque yes that’s the point I’m referring to. Sounds good enough for me!

    Anyone reckon the below link rules this out, Under springs/shock absorbers point 3? https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/virms/in-service-wof-and-cof/general/steering-and-suspension/steering-and-suspension-systems

    That's pretty much what I'm after, to get springs captive/make the car slightly higher at a cheaper cost to new springs.

    Yeah they would be sitting on the spring itself, my front springs have some that look factory, which is why I assumed all good.

    Evening all. Does anyone know if these are warrantable/legal? My springs are very slightly uncaptive. I can’t think of a reason as to why they wouldn’t be, but thought I’d check. https://www.trademe.co.nz/trade-me-motors/car-parts-accessories/parts-other-makes/suspension/auction-2041735400.htm Thanks in advance.

    Lowering - RX30 Cressida

    Right - I have got in touch with a supplier via trademe (oldscoolautos) and they have shortened RX30 shocks, so that could be another good option I reckon, just need to find springs at the right height then doing the aftermarket shocks is probably a win win, new shocks and captive springs!

    Lowering - RX30 Cressida

    Ok - I will try make it in there one time, bit niggly with their open hours and my work schedule, but we will see. Probably diligent to take my springs in and try match them up to something they have in a lowering spring I guess?

    Lowering - RX30 Cressida

    Thanks Bling, did you get Chamberlains to make up some springs for you? If so, what was the cost?
  10. I rung them about reset springs, I assume that involved some kind of heat treatment @Bling
  11. Wouldn’t know how much to take off to get it low enough (only really want to drop 50mm or so) or how to tidy it up haha

    Lowering - RX30 Cressida

    @JBlades any recommendations in Christchurch?
  13. Cutting is exactly what I’m trying to avoid haha. Struggling to find an aftermarket spring at the moment. 1980 RX30 Cressida.
  14. Actually @Beaver I believe you are correct. Key word being “or” in the wording of that document. Happy days.
  15. @Beaver do you think 2.2(19)(b)(ii) contradicts this? Given that they heat the springs (to my knowledge)
