Well, it is mostly now in!!

The packages were all trashed on the way up to cairns, and it seems that the front sawybar "link pins" have gone missing, and the bushes were the wrong size. so i have emailed whiteline to sort out some new ones.

So... the factory front swaybar is back on, for now. Rides well, bloody comfortable... got to take it back in tommorrow and they will realign the wheels and double check eveything for me, then its off to the range!! :D Feels really good at the moment, craazy amounts better than before.

The whole lot cost $1650 to bring it to cairns and fitted

In2, i'll take you for a spin once i get the front swaybar in.
Steady, dont be jealous!!
Jackal, seeing as now i will have to wait to get the front swaybar in, i can tell exactly what difference it makes, as opposed to doing it all in one go

Photos are coming soon, but for "lows" it is pretty bloody low!! :D (and it still fits in the garage, so i am a happy camper!!

Oooooh, oversteer city with just the rear bar in!
Actually, I'm gonna head down to Bursons some time this week and get 'em to order me in springs/dampers/bars...
So I won't be jealous for long...

haha, from what i came from, shot front dampers, oversteer is a wonderous thing!! :lol: It is actually really well balanced considering, only a little oversteer.

Glad to see you wont be jealous, the more the merrier!! :P

Bah, you dont need that front bar anyway!!

Oh, and the whiteline "lows" are s**t lower than XR height (which is what i was expecting) the guards are almost on the tyres!! :D nice!!

Photos on saturday (will give it another clean after the workshop managed to spread grease all over my quarter panels, doors etc!!)

Check out
G.T. Suspension Pty Ltd
137 Mt Alexander Rd
Flemington 3031

(03) 9376 0777

They can order whiteline gear in and have good prices.

Eagerly awaiting after pics as I'm also thinking of going with whiteline springs and shocks. Still gota decide on the swaybars if it's worth spening the extra if the car won't see the track.

Ordered it all yesterday arvo :D

Not from Bursons but, Autobarn of all places...
The guys in my local one are champions, were very helpful and gave me a good price.

Tried Bursons first, and apparently they don't like people buying things from them.
Pricks took ages to serve me, then when i asked about Whiteline stuff, he ummed and ahhhed, before FINALLY getting out the catalogue (I had part numbers in my pocket, but since he was being an a**hole I thought I'd make him look).

Then he quoted me $180 a PAIR for the springs, $220 for the front NON ADJUSTABLE bar, and $240 for the rear, also Non adjustable, bar.

He also claimed they 'couldn't' sell the dampers.
But it was really cause he couldn't be f**k finding the catalogue.

So a big f**k you to Bursons.

Autobarn sold me the front bar for $129 in comparison...

Should be here next week :D:D:D
Then on goes the 3.45 LSD, Suspension, and braided brake lines if I get around to it.

What a***hole.

What Autobarn in Melbourne did you order from? That price is bloody good and I will be getting the same :) I assume it's 30mm? What was the price for the rear?

Cheers

(Can't wait to hear how it improves the handling)

Yep 30mm, Autobarn Sunbury...
Rear was $139 - 149 i think? I can't remember already.
When I buy things I always just gloss over the cost in my head...
I didn't get rear dampers, but I might change my mind on that, and all up, dampers, springs, and bars, it was 690.
My pay went in today, and I did a bit more overtime then I thought, so I might go back in and get rear dampers and well.
Only problem is Whiteline shutdown there Melburn distro, so it'll take a week to come down from New South...
