    yer there is a few raised vns up my way, a raised vs ute in maddington. i live up in the hills of perth and im sick and tired of hearing peoples fun in there 4x4s on the dirt tracks near me. i was thinking about it over the past week, wouldnt be too hard.

    chop the lower and upper control arms and extend them using original bushes, chopping and extending the front struts a few more inches then getting sum custom shockies to suit larger springs. adding an extra cv joint to the front of the tailshaft and adding spacers to the center bearing bracket to lower it a bit. removing all the wheel studs and machinging longer studs so i can fit sum spacers to push the tires out. maybe getting a vs ute diff so the springs sit on the diff and not in the lower control arms and a big arsed panhard.
    wouldnt like to think if it would pass the pits mind u i have a bunch of mechanical and structural engineering mates. maybe once the resession hits i can pick up a cheaper vq and have a go

    possible to put big mud tires on commodore rims?
