@KKtrips Is there a go-to place for NDT in Wellington? The guy who did this last time for me seems to have vanished.

SGS seem to be pretty good. But it always pays to get the F008 form filled out by the certifier prior to sending parts for NDT so the test lab knows what they are looking at and what they are testing for.

Thanks. I do have the form here somewhere.

Hey @cletus, these upper A arms are being made in Aussie and will be "engineerable in QLD". Assuming the welding and clearance are good, do they look certable in NZ? They are bolt in and give more caster and camber adjustment than the stock arms.

Is it acceptable to space down suspension top hats?

 

A friend has got lowered spring in his accord, which are great, but he wants to raise the front of the car by about 8-10mm. We were thinking that getting a nylon bush made up to match the top hat would be a neat solution.

Looks like a good design. Who makes them? 

If it's a "recognized manufacturer " then there is less involved than if it's someone doing one offs

Worst case scenario it might need NDT and making sure the tube sizes meet our requirements

Technically would need cert if you put a spacer on top of the strut

@AllTorque s idea is better but just make sure the spring has coil clearance at full compression  so your mate doesnt end up with coil bind issues

On MacPherson strut it should raise it by its thickness, or near enough to. On double wishbone it'll be some % based on the ratio of spring perch to arm length or some such nonsense

Indeed, minus a tiny bit of compression. His main objective is raising the front bumper up. Assuming a front overhang of 750mm, a 15mm spacer raises the front by 19mm, pretty decent.

Can anyone explain the Grandfathering system that the LVVTA use and how it applies?

If a modification can adequately be proven to have been modified prior to the date of a standard being introduced then the earlier standard can be used. Not every everything has grandfathering rights though.

What in particular are you asking about?
