Considering the arse is out of the AU$ I'd grab a set from Woody before he has to order more at the lower rate.

So do the caster mod, shorten the caster bar bush spacers by 1/8" buy a set of Australian made K-mac XY falcon heavy duty camber bolts, 24mm, front bar, Koni shocks, set of Kings springs from the Gold coast try KFFL01 part number may need to trim them a touch. Wait and see how Gold Scodes car sits with them once he puts the engine in, It has a 1& 3/4 shelby drop with KFFLO1 springs. I'm keen to run a Watts link on mine like the ones Woody runs on the Trans-ams $900, I've got a rear boss 302 type bar and traction masters, I'll see how it goes, if its no good its getting a watts link.

Yep Kerry talking about shimming the top arm for extra caster as well and to bring the wheel back.

Indeed! Luxury.

BTW can anyone ID the wheels currently fitted to my old girl (photo taken before we put it in the container in NJ).
May well flog them when my TT wheels arrive.

Sure look like vintage [old] Ansens to me by American racing and the 7" have 4" bs and the 8" have 4.5 so try and figure that out when the TT has only 3.75 with a 7.

Yours are 7" wide.

Sure looks like a match with your photo. I'll have a look when she arrives. Yes I agree it's strange about the BSP issue.

Colloquially known as jelly bean wheels. We had very similar made by Aunger which people put on the XA Falcons etc. We also imported them as US Indy 5 slots.
