Like never having the wheels off dead centre when theres even a slight chance of the suspension compressing and shredding your guards and tyres.

When I bought my old car it sat on the road side for a week till i got a chance to modify my almost flat driveway flatter so she could get inside the yard.

Go new shocks & some king springs. It`ll make the car handle & it also wont be as bumpy & ruff, as chopped springs. :shock:

If you've got some bucks to burn I'd airbag it. Talk to Reece at Burnin Customs www.burnincustoms.com for more info. He's done a couple of EF/EL's and some AU/BA's as well. They go super low but have the versitility of riding high when the need arises. I've got bags in my 56 Vicky, they ride quite well and look awsome when aired out. [/b]

come out on the cruise, and have a look at everyones suspension work there - theres a heap of different mixes - so looking at everyone elses should give you a good idea of what you should grab! :wink:
