Get insured with Just car insurance mate. They bascially dont car what mods you have as long as they are legal...

RACV will let you drop the car 30mm from the original ride height.
So..... Didn't your car come optioned with the Tickford suspension when the original owner bought it........???? :wink: :wink: :wink:
Then Superlows should be very close to the 30mm that Superlows would bring.
I've got Ultra's and they saw it sitting on 16's, so it looked dumped and they didn't bat an eyelid.

Thanks for the positive feedback, makes putting myself into more debt almost seem worth it. :)

They cost me $1000 with rubber from the tyre factory in dandenong but i had to trade in 4 territory rims and the rims and tyres already on the car, they knocked off 250.

I did call just car, but im only paying 800 with RACV for full comp under mums name, whereas just car want 550 for third party fire and theft, mum gets the cars cheaper cause the house is with racv too.

The tickford suspension might work, altho the car actually came with towpack but they dont know that.

Got better photos today that i might upload soon.

cheers.
