Re: Retro fit independant rear suspension

OK Looking a the pictures I am not to worried about hitting the bump stops, say there is 15 mm of movement before the bump stop, that would be 30 mm at the outside of the wheel, (say) and that would be more than enought to foul the rear body, I am going to look at the car on tuesday for the day with...

I can't se any...
