    lol I think he means (by joking) that the low rear end is because of the invisible caravan attached to it. :)

    yea the new springs are expensive as, i was looking at some genuine king springs about 2 hours north from me, with the receipt and everything and original box but i was to late by 3 hours, only 200$ for a full set of sl. but they shouldnt be that hard to come across, just give the wreckers a call maybe they might have some. id reckon ssl would go nicely with the ul in the back. just my opinion though

    haha in reply to this comment on the other thread,good thing about holidays is i have time to clean my car and keep it clean :p detailing it at the moment in the garage,started sanding down the intake manifold for polishing as well,i'll chuck up pics soon

    Yeah they are, ah that's pretty good,yeah i've emailed a wrecker place,no response...lol. but i'll start chasing up springs and putting in effort to do so once i'm off holidays :p yeah it would look good.and was thinking something along the lines of that.but ul's are so low :p lol.driveway isn't that bad and i have 3 speed bumps in my street alone and they all suck with ul's haha.they look great but i hate driving soooooooo slow lol.i wouldn't have to worry about the back if i stuck with them but yeah.still deciding

    never email wreckers, always better to give them a call. they way they cant lose you or ignore you while you are speaking to them lol, they would be a bitch to drive with but it looks good haha. ill swap you my back springs if you like... good to see you detailing your car, i remember on the cruise you didnt wash it but you had the bottle of detailer in the boot haha, need some pics to show that it is nice and clean.
    love the photos of the intake, not long to go now, will look awesome once completed, nice and shiny. it would look better shiny then black. have a JD while your doing it, it might ease the pain lol
