Yeah this ones raked about an inch too.

need to get underneath it and have a look at possibilities for slam.

When you say take an inch of of spring top hat, you mean, cutting the top of the spring? Or extending the top had so the shock sits further up?

mine has an upper spring perch i'd guess you'd say - not so much the top hat, that has a rather unnecessary inch of length. that needs to be removed/shortened, to bring the top of the spring upward by that much. have yet to find mystery issues with this though.

 

i got blocks and U-bolts from SAS in the hutt. maybe will need to drill out the leaf spring plates to fit slightly bigger bolt diameter. unsure of leaf/block pin diameter but will mod to suit. think theyre listed as escort or cortina Ubolts. 65ID by 200mm long $120ish with blocks

Brakes in it are beyond shit. So there'll be no nose wheelie shenanigans... Yet...

Will have a look tonight when I get home and check out what this upper spring perch is all about. See how much we can lop off it without too many ill effects.

Anyone know if these things come up at pick a part much?
