    Scored some SSL front and SSSL rear springs and getting some matching Monroe shocks from a forum member this weekend. Hopefully put them in next weekend with the help of a mate. It'll be interesting to see if the guards need to be rolled with the 22's :unsure:

    Good work mate, hopefully you'll get away without rolling the guards :)

    Na mate swapped the 19's for 20 inch status knights, then swapped them for 22 inch Zenetti Masquerades. planning on getting them powder coated in white, like this:

    I fixed it now. Stupid internet links lol. The hard part is I'm torn between spending cash on this or saving and upgrading to a HSV. I'd love a GTS or an R8, but on the other hand I could have this pumping out some serious power for the extra cash I'd spend. I thought of a HSV body kit, and it'd look sweet, but I'd always know it wasn't a genuine one.

    Exactly... Hence the pondering.... I'll probably still get a cam and other minor stuff done and see what happens. I'd love one of the R8 SV Black Editions though.... drool lol... but I just would love something with 600+ at the wheels... something that just fries the tyres when you just breath on the throttle (if its too scary, my missus wont want to drive it!)

    Got all the gear to throw the springs and shocks in tomorrow apart from car stands... I'll duck up to Supercheap in the morning to get a pair. I'll get some pics along the way and put up a thread bout swapping the springs and shocks in the garage.

    Springs and shocks are in. Bloody fiddly job, probably spent double the usual amount of time to do them. End result is good so far, the back scrubs a fair bit but its going in tomorrow for a service and wheel alignment so I'll see if they can adjust it to reduce the scrubbing. Cant fit my finger in between the rear tyre and guard, front is all good. If not I'll have to get the guards rolled. Also discovered a shredded AC belt, not sure how long its been dead for cause its been a while since I've had to use the AC. I'll throw some pics up when I can.

    Cheers mate. My missus just picked it up from Holden. They couldnt do the wheel alignment cause they said its too low. She's taking it to a local shop after lunch to get them to have a look. Holden also said it has a leak around the sump and needs a new gasket, for $790. I've never seen any oil drops in my garage where its always parked so not sure whats going on there. Never had a low oil light come on either. They also said my heater hoses are leaking, that'll be another $250 odd. Gotta love dealerships.
