Ok so I got a few hours to play on Saturday and it was worth while. apart from many electric shocks and hydraulic fluid in my tea and every bloody where else. The fronts are fully operational and work damb well. As for the rears well there fitted but one of the soladnoids is not working so after much tinkering its time to source a new one. Got the details so I the hunts is on. Got it beached on some scrap metal and in am attempt to free her up the metal slashed a rear tire which made a hard task even worsef, coz it was then even bloody lower. This was before I.d sorted out the hydralics. Jacks are pointless when it comes to changing wheels when your cars this Low so I now use a forklift truck! Will put some photos up this coming week as I plan on lots of little jobs and my misses is away so some late nights on the motor I feel.

got my bits today and got cracking after my boring days work.

there was still some problems along the way but within a few hours I was 3 wheeling round the yard!

every thing seems to be working fine! :cheers

Would of put up a video of driving around but nobody was there to record it, guess you'll have to wait.

Ok folks heres a crap video of the rat attempting to three wheel. Taking bloody ages to download so I'll do it when its done.

had a few issues as you'd of guess, what happens is that on full lock and full height the hoses hit the steering arms which then undos the bloody thing and then obviously leaks.

I'm happy as with it so far!

NICE,,,

so how is the ride when you have the car at a ride level. is there any give when you hit bumps or its the ride harsh..
I will stick with the coil overs for now.. so I can autocross my car if I want..

But a low rider would be very cool.. some day.

I'm still here, cars been sat in my garage resting for some time now, not had money or time to play with it and got abit bored with the scene. Glad to see the site is still busy, will be looking around for a bit tonight see whats new.

Anyway It is coming back out next month as me and mates are driving around Europe for 11 days so really looking forwards to that.

I have new plans, big plans and it should be pretty fantastic, roll on the winter months to get busy with it.

Spaz
