Cheers man. No rubbing currently but Iíve had to add a lot of rear camber they would rub without it. Rolling my arches this week end so I can get rid of some camber and get it a little lower. 8.5j et38

Looking good buddy, keep up the good work.

Which brand of oil will you be using for the gearbox/diff?

Did a little repair on the gear stick as there was loads of movement in the nylon bush so filled the thing up with tyre glue and fitted it back on. That will never move again honestly made selecting gears feel 1million time better. I have also ordered better bushings for the fork as they are crap and heard good things about changing them for better ones.

So after fitting my softer rear springs after a bit of driving I wasn't 100% happy the ride was as it should be on the back end. So removed my rear dampers to find the damping faulty on this one

Driftworks sent me out a replacement tho under warranty after sending them a video of the problem that got to me in two days, canít fault there service and highly recommend them.

Should hopefully be fitting it after work today fingers crossed will be all good

Also a quick trip to caffeine and machine before I removed the suspension. Have rolled the rear arches now and got it sitting just how I want it.
