Bought some new heavy duty rear shocks off ebay a while ago, put them in tonight only to realise that because of the 3 inch lowering blocks the shocks only have 3.5 inches of travel before they top out which doesnt allow the airbag to expand the full 6 inches.

Ill have to find some longer shocks now :wacko:

Well i fixed the short shocks problem by turning the top leaf upside down then removing the lowering blocks, worked a treat!

Also booked the car into QOL, dropping it off next Saturday. Anyone wanna lend me a car trailer? ;)

Dropped the car off to Quality One Looms on Saturday so it should be back in about a month.

Also have to get a tailshaft made before then so it can be driven to test the auto gearbox wiring.

Seriously - it's a work of art!

Havent decided on a place to make my shaft yet, i was supposed to pull the gearbox yolk out of the car when i dropped it off but after a 25 hour shift at work on friday/saturday, then very nearly falling asleep on the way home, then again on the way to drop the car off i completely forgot about it.

so once i get back out there to pick it up ill call a few places and get it made so hopefully ill be able to drive it onto the trailer when the wiring is finished
