    great post well done. it is good information and very handy.

    my only pick is that i have found the 14pt suspension test that pedders offer is crap from past experiences both with my car and people i know.
    every commodore i know that has done this has come back with a report saying that the steering rack is buggered and needs replacing quoting $1500 plus when nothing wrong with the car in the first place.
    go down the road to a local shop and a couple of bushes later and $300 its fixed.

    thats my personal experience with pedders in wa but i am not saying they are all bad.

    Thanks heaps Subdue...already used it to plan my upgrades (if it happens or not is another matter).

    Perhaps move this to the general commo thread? It might be a little wasted here.
    Oh the wonderful things I could do to my car...
    if I had more money, no kids, no wife, no second car, no job, no rent, nowhere to be, didnt need food, didnt need beer...damn.
