    Only other possible issue might be heat soak from radiator , must say sorely tempted myself . But $800+ ,for carbon fibre ? I'd go for the standard one too .

    My rear ultras arrived today, so hooefully the ute can be sitting level soon. Do need to get the guards rolled first though as the front scrubs over bumps and the rear will do the same with the new springs.[​IMG]

    Got the guards roll last night and put the new springs in this morning. Looking good and driving nicely so far. I'll let them settle for a couple of days then post some pics up.

    You know your cars low when you need to drive onto ramps to change your oil.

    They're caravan leveling ramps left over from when we had one. You should be able to get then from Rays/bcf sort of stores or anywhere that does caravan accessories.
