Started the flip today but run out of daylight due to starting pretty late after footy!

Will have her back on the floor tomorrow afternoon though, pics;

Got her back on the floor this afternoon but she's not nearly low enough with the standard flip!!! I know the new shocks will settle slightly but still think I'm going to need 2" blocks at least...

No pics unfortunatley as it was dark when I finished so maybe get some tomorrow in the rain. Couldn't see major camber difference either but can't really tell until I get her on some flat ground...

Looks like it lol, from what I have seen they do as I have but some have made a smaller plate to go with the block for fine tuning. You have to drill through the block and use a bolt to locate it then so a bit more hassle.

I think the 2" blocks will do the trick nicely. I could go even lower as I jumped up and down on the rear and there is no rubbing at all. I think the camber and arch's have worked a treat...

Blocks haven't arrived yet Razz so jacked her up at the front and rolled one of the arch's before dark! As you can see my arch's have a fair few chips, dents and flaky paint so unfortunatley didn't go aswell as the rears and some paint has flaked. Prob have to paint them in the summer slaphead

Pics before rolling







I'll get some after pics in daylight...

Cheers damo c, that was actually when it was jacked up at the front.... Embarassed

Get on the floor...





I have a little more work to do on the front arch's as when I rolled them, where there were holes for the arch liner it has dented to outer arch a bit so may have to prise the inner arch back a little to remove the dent then fold back - I may need some advice from Mark (Supa76) on this though...
