Well, I've driven an AU2 XR8 Ute and they go good. Nothing like the IRS sedan over rough stuff, but very good all the same.TheBow said:Hi,
I don't know what is going on but the handling on my AUII XR8 seems to be a bit off.
I am thinking of putting a front and rear sway bar to decrease what I feel is excessive body roll.
Is this going to be a good modification?
Am I being a spoilt bastard?
Oh, only 9000kms hey? Well, if I told you the readings on my car from the day I got it you'd wanna chuck your guts up.TheBow said:Anyone know of any good wheel alignment places in Sydney as its probably not a bad idea even though I have only done 9000km's since new.
Pete,Aussie Pete said:Tyre pressures! Aahh yes. I use 34 front and 31-32 rear (helps that little bit of oversteer I like mid corner).
It will be on the tyre placard on the car. I think it's 28 or 30 psi. Higher pressures are listed for high speed or heavy loads.EL-Phat said:Whats the recommended tyre pressure for a set 235/45 17" tyres?
Yeah i noticed that ford tend to have their reccomended tyre pressures too flat for my liking.Aussie Pete said:

Your car will be even more sensitive to rear tyre pressures due to the traction thing with leaf springs. Softer pressure gives better traction in a straight line but reduces the cornering stability as the edge of the tread gets loaded up.
I find it interesting so many people judge a tyre by its tread pattern. It's what is hidden that matters (the construction).
Phoooooooooa, so high, what car you got?? My EF Falcon with 36 36 was super scary in the wet. Put my foot down in 4th gear in the wet and i went sideways.sjwau2xr6 said:If you wanna get the most out of tyres go 40psi front 38psi rear COLD pressures. You can go the 38/36 but the above is the go.
