Are you planning on having a rear seat?



Hey, my car is already certed, so no issues there.
I will probably install them the right way up, I doubt I will need to adjust it too often.
Yes I retain the rear seat.

Do you have yours installed already? How do they feel?

I think you may need to recert it with the new rear suspension. I would double check that. It is a pretty custom setup.

I don't have mine in yet. Should be in a couple of months.

Might need to roll them round in the gravel and leave them out in the rain for a bit. :D

Nice to see someone else has got this kit. I got mine about 4 months ago for my build. Make sure you get it checked by whoever is to do your cert as I had to send mine down to Wellington to get checked. They came back fine, but I have to install them 'upside' down in regard to the plate location inside the vehicle.

Are you planning on having a rear seat?


I take it you had to get them crack tested for cert as there is a welded part? And can you explain or post pics of what you mean by upside down? What didn't they like about installing them the usual way?

Great to see updates Adam, keep em coming

Hey bro,

I didn't need the to get the jacker kit crack tested. Just my adjustable front suspension as we are using 280zx strut casings. I had to send the jacker kit to Wellington so that could view it in person.

It is hard to explain what I mean bu upside down, but it is in regard to the top part of the kit. I will try and take some photos tonight of the kit and show you what I mean.
