Have you made any headway on this, Tone?

I'm afraid being self employed just doesn't leave much free time.

I should be off Xmas day but don't think Mrs T will be happy If I start messing with the car.

Hopefully, next Sunday is the day.

Well it's been a while since receiving the car back from Jd but things have been progressing very slowly in the background.

I have had many conversations with Kev (extreme) and ended up ordering a new front suspension because the one I had, was from the original design and required massive spacers. Also whilst removing stuff, I thought what the hell, I'll replace the drive shafts, drop links & tie rod ends.


The next thing i'm considering, is whether to fit air suspension or not? My concern is how low the car is and the everyday speed bumps.

Anybody got any thoughts and advice

Cheers
Tone

Hi Sparx so do you know if this guys are still making bodykits? I'm very interested in the CLK DTM one they selled a long time ago. Do you know what happened to them?

I don't think they are still in possession of the moulds but if i'm incorrect, i'm sure somebody will let you know.

Cheers

Air suspension is the way, so you can have it sitting nice when parked, raise up for speed humps, and a little bit for driving, you might only need to do the front, so its cheaper and less hassle than doing all 4 corners (the rear pigtail spring cups need modifiying). Alex did a great job with his.

Cheers, Brian.

I think I am going to fit the new suspension just on one side in the next couple of weeks and see if there is enough clearance for the stanceparts kit.

Cheers
Tone
