Dellboy999 survives day 1 of mod week

Hi all,

Day 1 has been and gone, what did I do

Changed the Diff from 2.77 to 3.23, and installed new air shocks for the SLS.

Well I didnt break any records took me all day, some of them damn bolts, were damn tight, the right rear brake disc had a rounded out screw (the ones that hold the disc on), so took a bit of hitting swearing and thinking to get that removed, but all good, need a new screwnow. The SLS springs are bloody long uncompressed they were a bit of effort to make enough room to remove without spring compressors.

Shocks dropped in with very little drama, the bottom bolt holes lining up didnt want to play ball, but otherwise easy enough.

Started at 8.30 am, finished at about 6 pm or so by the time I got all the bolts done up and everything aligned, took it for a quick run around the block, I have to say that 3.23 makes a hell of a difference, the car feels more alive thats for sure.

I do have some pics but ... need to host them somewhere, pay up my DM status should fix that problem, but car comes first :0)

Any questions, ask away :0)

Day 2 will be posted tomorrow

Great stuff! The 3.23 is probably the best single mod you can do in this case. You still doing the tranny on Wednesday?

Re: Dellboy999 survives day 1 of mod week

And some pics (thanks efflacon for hosting them)

The screw on the left is supposed to look normal like the right

They are supposed to be the same size, as you can see the shorter one is stuffed

Re: Dellboy999 survives day 1 of mod week

Good to see mate, when i changed my rear discs i had went and boutght myself a cheap($23) inpact driver, the screw came loose first hit.
3.23 gears will make a great differance after a 2.77.
