On a somewhat related note, I don't think that bushings have been mentioned yet in this thread. Are there such things as "better bushings" and is there any benefit to replacing them all periodically instead of waiting for them to get worn out one by one?

If you're referring to the suspension arm bushes then there aren't any better than the originals. The best replacement, as and when required, would be new oem bushes.

I came home from work and found the card from DPD.
Will have to pick up my parcels on Saturday.

That’s an early Xmas present

Many thanks to all involved with this group buy.
It must have been a mammoth job to organise this and finally to get them all delivered.

Bravo guys
Well done.

Be gooooown ye olde springs. Might be able to flog them on eBay as super rare spare PZ springs for some poor sod who's failed an MOT on a snapped spring. Doubt it.

The re-paint from ~18 months ago isn't that bad so just a wipe for the shocks and some new Bilstein stickers to put on tomorrow, then a good ol' thrashing at Santa Pod the following day. :thumright:

The spring kits have already been received.
Thanks to everyone involved in making this possible :thumleft:

To hell with bumpstops, just use some stale marshmallows.

Fitted and being put to good use :D

The stance looks spot on :thumleft:

Am I right in thinking that the original springs didn't have top coil sleeves, but the new springs do? If so, this should mean the new coils last a lot longer than the originals.

It will be great to see what peoples reviews are from driving on these brand new PZ suspension units.
I’ve only driven on them with at least 40Kmiles on them and they were good then!

Also that's with a lil bit of weight saving, looked a bit lower in the morning with a full tank, 10x spare tyres, 4x rims, mansize trolley jack, 50L of extra fuel and other tools & bits shoehorned in it :lol: ... but, 8kg battery so swings and driftabouts.


About 350mm wheel to arch in that pic.

Yes 350mm - you don't measure from the outside of the tyre! Datums aren't meant to fluctuate.
You measure from the centre of the hub.
