    Hey Mr Beef

    ep, nice Calais, how about some interior pics? and I agree with you, a small spoiler is one way to hide that huge bum :thumbsup:

    yeah, looks like the new springs have raised the rear a little, front looks about the same as before.
    how do you find it handles now? much different?

    yeah ull find that fe2 from a ute will be different than fe2 from a sedan, for obvious reasons.
    being the ute has to have jacked up springs so it doesnt bottom out when the trays full of crap.
    was it your intention to raise it? :S
    king springs SL's ftw

    'Rake' refers to the..tilt of the car, if you look at your after pic you can see the car is tilting forwards.
