Nice , looking good there.

So how much is your lowered at the back by then, as i can see a bit of arch rubbing on the tyre has been taking place?

I have to say, nice set of wheels... quite original too as I've not seen a set of them on a 300 before. I'm thinking they'd look amazing on a Mk2 3 door :D

thanks fellas!

re the year: she's a 1991...jus about to turn a reliable 42k, slight miss around 2200-2600rpm..changed dizzy,leads,plugs,filters,oil an stil slight chug/miss at those revs, not yet confident enough te start screwin at the carb myself so may call upon a carb minded mate unless you's can point somethin iv missed??

re lowering: its down 2" at the rear, gonna eventually try landy shocks ( ALOT to pay out this month :( ) but iv 165/65/13 tyres there to put on once the 175/70's are done...i'd sooner let them rub than risk scratchin a rim wile changin a good tyre..makes more sense to me to change only when the tyres done :mrgreen: ...kinda the same about engines, wont do a swap til engine comin out is right said fred, simply red.... DEAD 8) :lol:

re wheels: i was pondering superlites but as most have seen most modded 340/360s are wearing a set...cuz its cooool!! but i love classics on older dubs an it made sense in the pic i had in my head....i was after a 3dr mk3 to see wat its like in the flesh but most 340/360s over here in NI are long dead an rusted to bits so i jumped at this 5dr once me an the eldest bro went to have a look...i quote him " if your serious about buyin 1 thats the 1 to buy " although a fella i know threw another site has got 1 now too...il get you's a few piccys of it.

thanks for replies lads...still more to come when time/money allow...i want to go lower at the front by another 1"-1" 1/2?? have dai spec 3" springs in but need moar!! :twisted: :lol: ...anyone ever tried cutting an re-threading a strut?? what way does that operate??trackrod/ends etc??...also stil a few wee niggles to sort ie: petrol guage..snot working an im fed up watchin miles or pourin my rescue can into her...had the float out of the tank already an its free moving up an down so thinkin its in at the dash??

thanks again :340: sm4

I wasn't knocking about the tyre rubbing i just noticed it and thats the reason i've not lowered the back of mine yet, i've also got 2" blocks to go on at some point when i get round to it :)

I've also got the dodgy fuel gauge symptoms and it's doing my head in :twisted:
