bit of work in the last few days preppin for reppin



got this cut out and replaced with straight pipe...check out the flat spot on the lip and the banged up dentage along the length

this was so i could go lower

after loads of research and putting it off i decided to just use the lowering springs i got for free and lopp a coil off....until i decided whether or not to buy coilovers

so got this out


did this


took the old off for a comparison


then took a coil off anyway


shortened the bump stops


Got a bit of scrubbage if i give it some on bumpy roads so arches will be done

it aint super low but i dont think i could go any lower on 16"'s


BEFORE


AFTER

i tried it without a coil off...then took a coil off and measured the difference....one more coil and i would have 1cm tyre to arch....this i couldnt justify or risk

the picture is shit its at an angle and frosty....

it looks better in the flesh...youll see

jap plate with tilt on, a sticker or two and some much needed engine bay cleaning...

maybe a new back box...

rite i'm still fixing things as i go, and throwing a few mods in at the same time ...

noticed a leak on the power steering system...further investigation led to the discovery of yet another bodge by a previous owner

the power steering cooling pipe has been cut off and looped with some left over pipe crudely bent over and leaking all over the front panel...

ive aquired a new one and will refit it soon, but how do i bleed the system??
