Talk to Ralf at TruTrack in Melbourne. Great suspension shop who did my custom rear struts (koni inserts, raised spring perches, reinforced strut body) and custom springs. Ask him about the suspension setup on the blue Forester that belongs to Greg.

Finally, you can see the carrier with the strut in it, and the collet that will be fitted to the top.



Won't be putting the King springs back in. Instead, I am getting custom springs made. The rear springs will be progressive, and allow a decent ride when unloaded, but the rear will take up about 20mm when loaded and the spring will be harder, if that makes sense.

Really looking forward to this...

I recently bought a new compressor. Well, a mate bought it for me. Only when I got it home did I realise what I got myself in for. First of all, it’s pretty heavy. And they rate it at 300l an hour. Which explains why it draws 90 amps!!! I had to discard the wiring from the old compressor and go heavy duty. 100 amp circuit breaker, 175amp Anderson plug, and battery cables. Yes, it’s OTT and had I followed normal practice I would have got something smaller. But at 300l an hour, it won’t take long to air up!
