I've given up trying to find out...took it to one of the big tyre places but they said it was fine.
I rfeckon it has the wrong (lighter) spring from a 2.0L and this is a heavier 2.6L in-line six with an auto box. Pretty nippy for an old saloon.
It is too low though...keep scrunching on stuff.
Ah well...as long as it handles okay. :lol:

i expected that from you. this is my water cooled version of resto cal (as in what was considered resto cal circa 95)

wanted the basis to be the dullest combo - car colour and no of doors.

well, that and the fact the car was cheap and i had the wheels in stock!
