Latest update is front and rear shock absorbers have been replaced/upgraded with KYB's (big thanks to Damon/dattodevil for doing this for me in my absence and in time for Akaroa!). It was suggested at least the rear be done during the old girls last WOF. Doesn't surprise me after seeing how old and dilapidated the original shocks looked...
Damon was kind enough to agree to take the following pictures for me to view while stuck in Australia (I couldn't have waited till I was back in the country):
Hopefully that should make a difference going over bumps/Christchurch roads (especially for any back seat passengers!). Hopefully down the track I can look at getting some KONI adjustables (or something of the like) as a full upgrade package, but for now the cheaper option should suffice
I'm flying back this Friday evening, so can't wait to pick the Datto up on Saturday and take her for a spin. It's been too long... Am also hoping I can spend some of my spare time sussing out this S13 brake upgrade in time for Akaroa (may swing a PM past Luke and see how he got on in the end). Otherwise, are there any other proven brake upgrade options worth exploring? Keen on any opinions/feedback
Big ups to Damon and Hamish for getting me to this Akaroa cruise, the first in my own car! Also to Kitch for many parts, and everyone else for your words, opinions and feedback. See you all next weekend!
