  1. Can I have it ?
  2. I would do it properly! use a good jet wash, dry it a little then use kill rust (it needs water to work anyway) then seal it, let it dry for a day and follow up with chassis black, rust only needs a little spot to eat though
  3. Money no object because previous car was an XF same engine and drivetrain and the balljoint failed flipping the car in turn 1 at QR This is just good insurance and cheaper than a new chassis especially with the crazy prices x series demand these days With these arms you don’t have to move the arm to the rear as caster is built in so it fits well in the space, tyres rub a little at full lock thou so have to be a little careful when reversing but forward it’s ok as it will scrape but not rip the bar out
  4. 2nd last pic guy can see the offset
  5. I use the Global West arms so might be different
  6. look the thing with the open tracker bearing spring saddle is this: does not add harshness at all does make the ride smoother with harder springs does make the ride a lot smoother with normal springs never have to grease it etc. and can be rebuildable So yes it does make a good difference that you feel when unexpected, it's not a night and day difference but it's got a smoothness to it that is hard to pick but it's here, strangely enough i felt it more on the wet when the car leans it's a little more taut. I don't think it's a performance mod thou as I could not really get a chance to test it on the track and on the street you get locked up finding the limit of a well sorted old box falcon (sad hey)

  8. I use the opentracker ones, they use roller bearings, bliss, very smooth I have global west UCA and LCA both on bearings on the lower and Delrin (solid) on top, super pro on caster rods and sway bar and with 800pound springs and Koni the car is extremely smooth with no harshness at all, smoother than my mk6 GTI global west arms have added caster in them and have built in Shelby drop, they drop the top arm almost half inch more and no binding issues, it's a nice bit of kit, no fouling on anything
  9. yeah I remember talking to old mate DJ and asking him what was the secret behind the XE, his words were "people do't realise how light these things are and the cleveland made good power" thinking about it now yeah ... they were light!
  10. in all honesty the XE to me means more than the XY as I never seen the XY race but remember DJ fanging the XE around the track and that's what makes me hard, three images from Australiana will stick with me, DJ driving the wheels out of the XE, Glenn Seton EB falcon And the E30 M3 Out of those cars I'm glad I have the XE and still looking for a mint ED XR8 Sprint......they are getting harder and harder to find now
  11. we should do what the Supra boys did, list our cars for say 80k on carsales, as a joke the Supra boys listed all their RZ's on carsales for over 100k, one got sold for 98k the guy immediately bought another for 38k
  12. There is an xe 6cyl for over 20k on carsales, over 20k! Glad got my xe when I did, they will be worth up to 40k in 5 years time as or generation gets older and have more money
  13. for good dampers you can buy the Bilstein ones from the states, http://opentrackerracing.com/product/bilstein-front-shocks-street-valve-1971-1973-mustang-also-fits-60-70-falcon-60-65-ranchero-66-70-fairlane/ send them an email make sure you get the right ones! you can send them a pic of your current one and you will be right, they are $199 US, fucking good quality thou
  14. it will settle another half inch and it will be enough, when both wheels on ground check top ball joint clearance to the bump stop
