I found subframe has been flopping all over the place like a fat woman on her back. Subframe has also been hitting the chassis.

I looked at pineapples, solid c collars and solid brass replacement inserts. Noting the car is also my daily I though solid c collars or solid mounts would be too harsh. Ended up going with a set of superpro subframe collars. They are nolathane and some where inbetween pineapples and c collars. Only down side is you need to drop the subframe to install. Pretty sure hipcrostino runs them aswell.

No idea, however I saw a post saying that they would advise if it was full. So I assume there are still places left.

Yeah do it Bren. Best not to think about it too much, just pay for it and then you're committed.

Brennan comes from a Rally background, I think??? Was doing alright when he was out there at Wakefield last time. Just chuck a R31 or R32 box in and run it dead.

So it turns out, steering rack was bent, teeth worn out and has heavy pitting on the shaft. Beyond repair, plan b, reco rack.

I am getting it done through Active power steering and suspension a mob in Sydney, they have a small distribution hub in queanbeyan. I was lucky they were able to source another rack in better condition so they are overhaulling it for me. Should be here next week.

Should be here before the 15th of June but am not holding my breath. If they get here in time and I can get a proper alignment, I'll chuck them in too.
