Hey guys, so to finish off-I started reconnecting all the lower plugs-starting with the crank,oil pressure,knock sensors and then fitting the AC bracket on/torque then the AC pump and reconnect AC plugs.Then it's time to do all the injectors,coils,cam sensors etc....
with the cam or VCT plugs (which I can only assume the Tabs are brocken as every single one "IS" on every single loom in the country) all I do is push the connectors on put some sort of wedge behind it so it cannot move and put a dab of Ultra Blue where the broken Tab should be/once dry they will not come off unless you want them to,you should be able to work the rest out-but feel free to ask any questions,ohh the lift bracket I haven't done yet cause the bolt is spanner breaking tight but see pic FG lift bracket Barra ute,will add anything else I can think of later.

Anyway hope this helps someone.
Cheers Johnny.

Hey Papa Smurf,I think I am going with XR springs and shocks too as I have BA-XR wheels now,roads are too s**t to go lower,I just had to do brakes-didn't think of going bigger though (maybe one day) did front slotted rotors/bendix pads,rear generic pads and all new braided brake hoses,would love to see whats involved in the brake upgrade though,thanks again for your comments mate.
Cheers Johnny.


I have done the change twice and it was relatively easy. Once on my AUIII and on my mate's FG MKII.
The fronts just require new Discs (of course) and a new Outrigger for the calipers which can be had from Ebay for about $150.00 a pair ( I was lucky to get mine for $115.00 pr).

The Rears may require a little bit of work around on the backing shield but, not hard to do and the Calipers for the rear are used on a Territory and can be gotten from Ebay also for about $75.00 each. Pretty easy to do.
