I go to Chamberlains for all my tyre needs etc prob a bit far for you. Maybe the guys at challenge Halswell would be closest? Gary is a G.C

Fitted. Chris and Sam at Mag and Turbo are champions. Go see them.
I've gained a massive amount of clearance. I can fit my hand right in and around the tyre well now.
Even have to raise it to level out the front.
Great results.

Those Weight Jacker kits are neat, Broke was telling me about them a while back.

I could definitely feel the difference when i put ( my own fabricated version ) Compression was much more linear and the back end did less weird things.

Nice progress Adam.

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?
