Looking goodOk here is some pictures. I have made the exhaust so if I get a flat it wont touch the ground and it is still low enough to change a wheel without taking the tailpipe off.
Like I said I am not a big fan of having my exhaust under the diff but I needed it in a hurry so I could get the car registered and that is also why ther is a pair of resonators at the back to quiten it down a bit. It had to be 95db at 1 meter and it was 97.4db but with those two little resonators it went down to 94db what a load of BS for registration.
This is sitting on a crate about a foot off the ground
Man they soak it to you!We have inspections on anything older than three years, not that hard if you know the right people.
Also for my first registration I had to get an engineering certificate for everything modified which also cost $1600.00.
I had to pay $3700.00 for my first years registration which include stamp duty and third party personal insurance and Engineers cert. From now on it will be about $1000.00 until it goes up again.
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.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.
How does a man live over there. No place like the good old USA.:flag6: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.
since you have the body off the frame flip it over to do the pockets after you do the rear shackle mount.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.
