Is your 20G shoving anything at the moment?

Everyone Know's Wagons are cooler anyway. Especially in Silver.

So some Handling updates are going to be made...

Bought some Eibach Pro Street S Coilovers and some Tein Pillow Ball front camber mounts. The rear I will be fitting new OEM top mounts.

I'll do the brakes next lol.

So my current Prodrive springs and shocks will be for sale once they've come off the car.

The Eibachs give a really nice ride. Probably better than what's on it at the moment to be honest. It'll be set at the same height it is now too.

Yeah all gremlins are resolved . Running very well, it's very quick.

Brakes not 100% sure yet, maybe some 330mm K sports, but undecided.

Engine wise it will be getting a FMIC, larger turbo (SC42, T36 or similar), bigger injectors and other supporting mods at some point in the future. No mad rush though. I want it to still be a nice drivable car.

They're still on the car at the moment, probably coming off in a couple of weeks. But I'll let you know. You're nice and local too as I'm in Hook so that would be easy.

Not yet. Need a pair of Pillow ball nuts to mount the camber top mounts. Currently having an argument with Tein to try and get some. Bloody fortune for a couple of nuts.

OK that would be cool. They're just a nut with a sleave that takes up the space between the damper and pillow ball to give a snug fit. I'll have a search later on to see if I can find out the size. The OD is quite important so it's snug in the pillow ball. They look like the pic attached.

I need OD, thread size and pitch, overall length, length to the shoulder, shoulder dia and the size accross the flats on the hex.
Probably about four hours work to make two.
A drawing would be best

I know I can get thread pitch, size etc. I'm wondering if it's worth posting you the top mounts so you can measure them up etc? My eibach dampers are as per oem as they're designed to work with oem top mounts.

There is also a collar under the mount apparently.

PMP03-91022-2 is the Tein part number for the fitting kit which allows them to fitted to OEM shocks.

M12 x 1.25 x 18mm long thread.

Well need a new front bumper now for sure. Destroyed an idiotic fox last night. Ran straight out into the left front corner, had no time to react at all. Hit it at about 60mph. Car came off a lot better than the fox though.

Bumper flexed and took the impact, but it's broken the side mount, wheel arch liner is ruined. The paint has creased / cracked all over the place due to the flexing and its got a few small cracks in it. I was expecting to see carnage when I got out as after I'd hit it all I could hear was something dragging on the floor and rubbing on the wheel but it didn't look anywhere near as bad as I thought it was going to!

Cable tied it back together this afternoon and it looks ok unless you look closely.
