Man they soak it to you!
You got to love that ride to pay those prices.

"engineering certificate" sounds like your Building a house.

Last Tag I got was $28 and insurance with out collision will run about $250 a year.

That right four cars at $1000.00 each to register for one year plus a truck that is $2000.00 a year but can be paid quarterly. Plus full insurance on top of that which is about another $3000.00 for all vehicles that I have.

Hello,
I see this tread is fairly old but will see if theres any response anyway.
I too am in NSW & am thinking of going the pocket kit but had a few questions.
It obviously had no trouble with the engineering side of things which was one concern.
I am trying to do most mods myself but this looks quite in-depth & is kind of scary when it comes to cutting up the frame, did you carry out this job yourself & was it hard to do?
It's either the pocket springs, a 4 link which is probably an overkill/expensive for just a cruiser or relocating the leaf springs to inboard of the frame.
Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated.
I'm only really after 2 objectives, to put the widest wheels I can on the rear(have mini tubs) and to get it to sit fairly low without airbags etc.

I ordered the relocation kit also along with the PTK4 kit and hope to be installing them within the next few months during the frame portion of my rebuild. The video for the install doesn’t actually look to terribly difficult. I’m new to welding and am gonna give it a try.

since you have the body off the frame flip it over to do the pockets after you do the rear shackle mount.
