I beg to differ. A lowlux may have a few more mod cons and look flash but damn is the ride harsh.

Mate, I just read your whole thread, and it reminded me of two mates on Tambo that were Datto Nuts..

Your thread was awesome... then it has a sad ending!! Damn, pity man.

Skeppis: Mine was lowered with drop spindles and the resest rear leaves (minus a couple also) and 2 inch lowering blocks. :) Still bumpy in my opinion.

skeppis... "in the industry"? My Stanza is going to be looking for a suspension "freshen up" before the end of the year ;)

I fail to understand lowering *most* cars let alone a ute. If it were mine, I'd probably be raising it!

ok girls and boy s the stanza will camp in the front yard for a lot longer now but it will turn into a tramac car for the weekend so on the weekend i will drive her in the shed and start on the rust and pull out the interior.

so i can put in a fire wall and the carpet will be ripped out too and start relocating the gauges so they are in a better possy for view.
and will be wanting to put twin carbies on it and a different cam( want to change from the wankel cam to a rally spec cam so it has a smooth idel


SO IF ANYONE GOT A 45MM SIDE-DRAFT WEBER CARBY FOR SALE PM ME
