    Damn they look great!

    Get them all on last night?

    Racing... Because football, rugby, basketball & golf only require one ball

    Yes, got them fitted & will run them this weekend.

    They will be coming back out however because the front doesn't have anywhere
    near enough height adjustment.

    Also, my rims/tyres on the front hit the strut.

    I nearly pulled the fronts out today to go back to my old set due to tyre
    fouling, but I got my smaller 9 1/2 rims to fit but to do so I've had to run almost no negative camber.

    (My normal front rims are 18x10 with an 35 ET running a 265 yokahama A050 semi slick
    but there was no way they would fit. The rim & tyre was hitting the strut & even trying
    a 5mm spacer didn't help)

    I spoke to supashock & ole mate said he can modify everything to suit. But at what cost?

    I'll wait till the mods are done so I can get my bigger wheel/tyres back on.
    And wait till the car can be aligned & corner weighted correctly before I make
    any comment on how they perform.

    Doesn't sound good at all. What did you have in the front before? 10" is big up front on these cars

    I run 18 x 10's all round for hill climbs
    Rear tyres are 295/35/18, and fronts are 265/30/18 - these are my softs.

    Circuit are mediums - 18 x 9.5 all round, with 255/3518 fronts & 295/3518 rears.

    Wets are/were my street wheels - 20 x 8.5 front with 245/35/20 & rear 20x 10.5 with 295/30/20
    Michelin pilot super sports.

    I'll take some photo's over the weekend & post up here on Monday after I get home for you to see
    the ride height of the supashocks.

    In all fairness he sounded really genuine & asked me give them the time to deliver because
    he promised that once I fitted them (the shocks) I would be over the moon in the cars handling.

    And to calm me down he's given me 2 corporate tickets to the supashock suite at
    Eastern Creek when the supercars are on later in the year.
    Was that just the deposit or total price, they quoted me 5500

    Looks like you'll need to offset the lower bolt in front strut

    Maybe that was the deposit part. I didn't go in to it to much. For the street that's to much for me.

    I'm pulling them out Mick & sending them back for Supashock to sort out.
    This has been one huge headache from the start.

    I really couldn't get a feel for them because it was a monsoon all weekend
    at Grafton.

    Bathurst is on in 2 weeks & once again the shocks wont be ready. Really pissed.
