need to drop the front now.... looks like its going to the moon
What sort of springs does it have in it? Looks like just the rear springs have been changed?
yea i agree with juzsvy. there are definately no springs in the rear of that car. what my old vh looked like when i took the springs out.
Theres springs, There stock springs with 3 coils chopped off (it sits about an inch lower but there was bricks under the rear jack points lol)
i'm looking into getting some 35mm fronts and 60mm rear springs off ebay soon.(35mm & 60mm lowered springs)
Looks like a good first car mate but I think the holden sticker needs to come off, we all know what it is.
^^^MY RIDE VK CALAIS 304^^^
Naa i love those stickers. It gives it a "v8 supercar" look, sort of
Looks like a pretty neat VK mate from the pics. As long as the body is in good nick you can go very far with it!
yes there only a few light dents on the drivers door and one in front of the fuel filler thats a very strange dent, Its like some one has hammered a bike axle of something into the panel (5c big and goes in about 1 cm) other than that is perfect! no rust and pretty straight for a 21 year old car
Your vk looks pretty sweet from the pic
Ok today i got off my ass and got the camera cable out Here are some pictures i have taken from Just after i started doing mods to the beast!

Pat's Vk commodore! NEW big pics!
it looks live a sweet project starter, whats mods/plans do you have for the old girl hhmm Lady? lol
a 202 will always do
i love the vk's! that's a fast 0-100 time
I don't know how true those new specs are because they were written on a piece of paper with heads of different question type things. I should be getting an amp to run my sub some time and a new steering wheel (old one has no horn thing (round plastic thing you connect the wires to ) and Hopefully a Brock Group A grill

A bit Of an update
I have started my boot install, and i have fitted my brock grill (HDT) and i now need to paint it because its red! I need to fit my horn button and fit my rear springs. I have also found another vk calais wheel with good tred so now my car should be roadworthy if i can use 2 different wheels? (2 15" 5 spokers and 2 15" calais wheels? all have 205/65/R15)
Pics are coming!
