    Yeah nice to know.
    I'm going to spend the next few months full proofing the box and diff then decide if I'm going to boost or build a stroker next year.
    Both of those will require different exhausts so I haven't even looked into it to be honest.

    Well after a few big days rolling around under the thing it finally moves again.

    Today was big one.

    - Installed new P/S Rack
    - Control arms (resprayed first)
    - Tie-rod ends
    - Ball joints
    - Rear shocks
    - Rear sway bar bushes
    - Reassembled P/S pump and belt

    Still needs a wheel alignment but thank god it’s all done it was a hot/humid sweaty week in my garage.

    The entire front suspension, steering and brakes are now brand new.

    Rear needs some panhard bushes but everything else there is in good condition or replaced also.

    Next step is a unis/cv, gearbox, diff and rims.

    Cheers mate.

    Thanks mate!

    Will keep hacking at it during the year when I'm not away for work.
