hey guys... hehehe

went into a driveway today, steep bastard, anyway on the way in heard a loud BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!, maybe the exhust hitting or fuel tank harness
on the way out of the drive through i got stuck..... one of the rear tyres got lifted off the ground and my good old single spinner diff wouldnt give power to the other wheel...

i was stuck there for 15 mins before i got some people to help lift the rear end of my car off the ground enough so the wheel could touch the ground... :( now thats the height of embarrasing :(

it was a killer of a drive way, it was like

stuff like that used to happen all the time in my vp, luckily i had a towbar fitting (no actual tow bar) and it used to cop all the damamge and not other important things.
you still have to think twice about how your going to tackle certain situations, id stay away from that driveway if i were you, lol.

I used to have the same problem before I got my kit when I had my old springs in. I got grounded in a driveway as well and had to get mates to lift the back of the car while i tried to reverse out...

It used to be a bitch. I got sick of scraping my tow bar an having to get my exhaust re-tightened.

Its not worth the hassle imo, get higher springs before you ruin your kit.

why are they only sitting 50mm off the ground with superlows? They should be closer to 130mm :p
