    • If they're throwing them in the lathe, could they skim the face and make them into Tickfords?

    • ando81 is sending the other mag sometime,and the caps,when it comes i might take them down to the machine shop and get some gutter rash cleaned up then re paint them .
    • looks like its suspension week on ozfalc
    • You reckon 9" rims would fit the front OK? I'm worried about 8s on mine.     Yeah I know what kind of cars you mean. The ricers with stupid camber and flares to cover the illegally offset wheels they've put on. "drift-style" front wheel drive lol. They're putting et0 wheels on a car designed to run et35s.

    • Hey Broken,
      I don't know if ya read my Outback thread lately but when I fitted mine... there was a clearance issue right at back of the upper A arm..... bottom on the left at the back.
      I ground mine right back to get proper clearance. Just the outers on both sides.

      REALLY hard to see but binds there.
      Easy to suss out. If you cant slide a piece of paper between arm and bearing holders on saddles. ..take off and modify.... like night and day.


      Im thinking cause the front end was copied from 68-74 Mustang that our upper arms used theirs as a template. Making the inner hole of the upper arm smaller.

      Anyone got a Mustang arm from the states for comparison?

      Anyway. .. just a heads up.
      I thought they were ok when Binding. .. after a clean up... lovely.

      Jack

    • Hehe 2red,
      Probably should save petrol anyway.
      Think today is our last sunny day before a front hits.

      Don't mind, farmers could REALLY do with some rain.
      Getting windy.... starts like this out here. Half a day of wind... then hopefully... rain.

      Ute is going well. Local tyre shop and me don't do buisness any more.... and I'll buy my tyres and stuff in Albany from the guys who listened and sorted the problem.

      Anybody with an x series ute...
      Do your front wheels have the same distance between tyre and guard.
      Cause if not... chances are your castor is out. Had a difference but it come good after front was aligned properly.
      My question is......
      My diff.... 2 fingers on one side... 2 1/2- 3 on the other....
      Normal? Or loosen off spring shackles and beat into submission?

      Oh.... and ute chassis is not 4mm out front to rear.... its AOK.
      Had it checked out...... phew!
      Some people talk a lot of shit.

      Jack.

    • Mini lites ,mini lites, mini lites!!!!!!
      They look sweet and I've had a 13" set on Escort... looked tits.
      And easy to spray up the centres and spokes gold (is what I did).

      They may a bit more exxy.... but they look good on any car... from classics to cruisers.
