Well Fitted the bushes and control arms today all went nice and smooth no issues. Handeling wise i have changed the rebound of the shocks a little to make them a tad softer now with all the nolathane in the back end. It feels much the same as before not harsh but the diff now doesnt move around or axle tramp and it like sliding sideways :P

Are those upper and lower control arms shorter than stock. They seem to be in the pics, but about 10mm on the upper and 15-20mm on the lower

Ride: AU III XR8 Pursuit 250 ute

Location: Hobart
TAS, Australia

Any more info and pictures re the fitting of the T56? How'd the clutch pedal go - being an AU was it fairly straight forward due to the similarities with the B-series? How'd you go with the rear bracket for the T56? Is it just a standard BA 6 cylinder clutch kit and flywheel required to bolt to the AU motor or was there some mixing and matching with AU and B-series parts? Does the T56 6 cylinder bellhousing bolt pattern match that of the back of the AU motor? AU starter motor?
A lot of questions there I know, but I'm looking to convert my EF which is running an AU motor as my next project...

Clutch pedal is cut and weld BA pedal onto AU pedal box.
Trans mount is standard AU holes have been drilled further back.
Flywheel is a 10.5" AU windsor.
Clutch is XR6T 6 speed
T56 bolt pattern for 6 cylinder is same AU and BA/BF
AU starter motor bolts straight up

Bomber, while I appreciate what you have done with your Car I don't go much on the scoops but, that's a personal choice. :)

What i would like to know is where you got the Upper and Lower rear control arms?The lower ones especially look much cleaner and nicer than the Originals.
