Yup, i just hope that the pre-load and balance are correct. id hate to be oversteering like a mofo if that isnt correct. Had a long discussion about that too.

And then we started with the race dash...

Really happy with how that turned out. Just roughed it in at the moment, will need to sort out the gauges and panel fitment.

I have some ideas on that, but will need to be fleshed out some.

That is the most hipster packaging for car parts I have ever seen. :lol:

Love that ARB! I've been rethinking my setup recently. Do you know if your supplier has hollow/adjustable bars for the OEM pickup points?

They are at the top, these are in inverted. Lol.. :thumbsup: have to still see which way they will be installed once the wheel is on properly installed. (They are only loosely installed at this stage and only to stop the suspension arm from hanging) but to answer your question, helper springs can go either place. Top or bottom. And these shocks can also be installed either way, upside down or right way up, just depends on how you fit them and for what reason. These have provision for remote canisters, and as such would be upside down, but as I have no need for that, leaves me open to install which ever way I like. :) Which might even be this way as the main body will see less fod this way.

Interesting never seen suspension you can fit either way before! Certainly different that! I'd fit them the other way to protect the damper rod from picking up damage?

Fod, are you in aero? :thumbsup:

Yup, sadly as it's probably the worst sector to be in ever. All of mates have gotten fired over the last 8 months. :( I'll have a look see after my wheels are fitted, depending on clearance.

I sincerely hope so mate, only surviving as i am on the 777 fleet, nothing to do with skill or otherwise, just luck of the fleet. not sure how were gonna go though the 380 is like the Titanic, and will most likely take all of us down with it as it sinks down into the depths of stupidity. :headbang:

On the upside, my Injectors arrived today.. :D and my diff is ready to be picked up... :thumbsup:
