Yeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaa

Hey all

Well I thought my suspension shopping spree at the wreckers last week was great (20000 klms old Pedders front springs, comfort gas shocks and rear Sports Ryder shocks for $180 bucks)

My old man just informs me he knows someone who used to race production cars (u know, the series where EA's run VN's???) and he has a set of really stiff King Springs used in his car.....which he is giving me for free!

Will lower the arse of the EA by 2 inches....and the front by 1.5....Sweet.

Comes as a nice surprise after having to replace suspension, tie rod end and lower ball joints, plus rear brake pads all in one week :(

well...

Ok I only did the RHS tie rod end.....cost me 55 bucks trade thru repco

The balljoints were 45 bucks a pair.....

Now all I need is to replace all the bushes with nolathane, the aformention springs and Im thinking the steering rack in on the way out....:(

But then again, spend this money and it will be fine for another 4 or so years true?
