i ended up with leppas utes entire suspension setup in the end................

but it just gathers dust till i decide to cut up my rear floor pan to be low and functional.

the only thing im missing to bolt it all in to either vehicle is new s13 disks. as i refurbished everything else when i bought originally. i also dont want to use existing strut tower pins/bolts/i dont know......as they are bigger than factory by a couple mm. not drilling my strut towers out! il eventually get something new pressed in to camber plates.

are your tyres rubbing on the firewall per chance>? i had to get wal to cut and reweld to gain clearance needed by lowering more than 50 mm on both 1200s. failing that slightly skinnier tyres help. i chunked out my tyres due to soft suspension on the ute via the guard being aggressive.

Na nothing's rubbing. I'm pretty happy with current set up. It travels nicely but WOF guy doesn't let me use RCAs without cert so I'm starting to get sick of pulling em out and back afterward.

Cut up floor pan? Are you meaning the coupe?

Took tyres into mag&turbo today to get the rubber removed.

Any ideas on how to tidy them up?
Was going to mask up and respiratory the inner black and then polish up the chrome with elbow grease.

Any suggestions on this ie taking to a supplier to machine polish or using a paint shop to bake paint on or is out of a can still going to be Sweet?

Also how are we adding pics now that photo bucket is a rip?
