just had a dig then;

QUOTE CAPA WEBSITE;

Crewman Fuel Tank, Now Available 22nd April, 2004
Have you ever wanted to lower your Crewman, Cross8 or Adventra? Be aware that lowering the rear axle will bring the tailshaft in contact with the fuel tank, being plastic it doesn't take long to wear through. Our new aluminium fuel tank sits higher off the ground than the factory unit, allowing you to lower your car by more than 3 inches.

Recommended Retail is $1085.00 inc. GST.

when i looked into buying a crewy i remember reading that when u lower them u need to be careful that the axle doesnt come into contact with the fuel tank. i saw on a web site that someone installed a custom fuel tank just to have it lowered.? it kinda put me off them but i have seen a few lowered since then. Have u or anyone heard about this problem?

Love ya work m8.

It's quite true about lowering of a Crewman however you can get them alot lower than is being suggested, I had mine lowered all around by Pedders and am only running 17's currently so when I put the 19" on will come down further.
