$120 from DCStraight postage inc. quality is good too.

Tell you what it feels strange having the car in a shop for 4+ hours.

Still good for Sunday?

Shocks and bushes are installed and the car handles better than it ever has, rear shocks will be installed tomorrow. I have some photos of the car I took today but will put them up with a bunch that will be taken tomorrow.

Yeah man your thongs will be safe haha putting the rear sway bar in now then she will be complete.

I had to extend the sway bar links another 5mm or so to get just a tad more clearance so ill upload the photos when im back at work on Wednesday.

Exhaust will have to go in next week going to try and pickup some 4490's to go in with them, also wouldn't mind organizing that fg manifold some time this month.

Thanks heaps again the car really needed it.

No problems mate. How was it to drive with only the front done? Any clunking on pre load? I guess the heavy links will help stop too much pre load movement.

Yeah there was a bit before the rear went in and it was still happening after. I think we will have to keep adjusting the links till it stops.

Yeah true. I guess with enough fiddling you'll get it right. I just put up with it when I had it in, as music usually drowned it out.

Okay here are some photos from the weekend work I did,

First two are the new adjustable sway-bar links connected to the new white-line sway-bar.

Thanks to krazed for the extra help whilst fitting the new parts to the car.

Image

Image

The next lot are the new front end control arm super pro bushes installed along with the new front shocks.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Took photos of the rear end shocks before we swapped them out and never took photos of the new shocks installed :roll: White line rear sway bar was also installed. will try to get some photos tonight.

Image

Took a shot of the driver side interior so you can see the steering wheel, pedals etc.

Image

Will take photos of the new exhaust i purchased from krazed and put them up tomorrow.

On a side note tried to pull that XR6 LSD diff apart and found two sheered or cut bolts, not sure if that's meant to be but a decent vice and drill bit combo and we will crack it open no problems.

Krazed how confident are you that its gears/center are still intact? from the outside it looks like its been blown, but we wont know until its opened. The diff will be a long term project haha

I'll take some photos of the engine bay aswell a few new parts have arrived for the air intake, I'm at my third draft and I think that's how it will stay until I pick up the growler and SS TB.

Overall the new parts have given the car a new lease on life, it's incredible.

Now all I need is some Pacey 4490's, New alloy radiator + all new hoses, front slotted rotors and brake pads, new tires, growler + SS TB, FG manifold conversion, crow cams then a tune.

No idea on condition of gears man. I bought it off a wreckers about a year ago for cheap, was going to replace the gears regardless of condition lol
