Yeah, the back seat bit is a bit annoying, but ill be getting the extenders for the damper knobs so I can adjust the damper settings afterwards without removing parcel tray and seat

installed the front shocks today, didnt bother doing the rears just yet as i think the front shocks needed replacing anyway and my warrant is in 2 weeks. the pre tension was exactly the same as well as the height on both shocks. and i think its perfect height.
heres some pics after i cleaned my car:






i will do the rears once my warrant is done and the damper extenders have arrived.

you might have a bit of trouble getting a warrant with height adjustable shocks, i guess it will depend where you go...

Looks good! I put mine on today as well. I measured the height between each ring to make sure they were the same then chucked it on, ride height is juuuust right. Will drop the fronts a bit when I can be bothered.

Did you go for a drive? The difference I felt is amazing!

Yeah I have kept the old ones for warrant time. The difference is amazing, went for a quick ride round the block, and its awesome. I have them set on 10 from soft, and they have good ride quality.

Mint you have a pair of bc golds as well. Awesome Adjusties dude, I love mine so much and they are so easy to fit. Rear springs are rather easy to get in as well once the parcel tray is out it's a simple unbolt procedure, watch out for the re-coil of the shocks when there cracked off. They leave a lovely mess of your skin should your hands get in the way lol :D

yeah im so glad i bought a good jack and 2 pairs of axle stands, makes doing the suspension work a breeze. im kinda paranoid though im not a huge fan on using the car without a cert, but the front shocks were stuffed and it made no sence to me to buy a set of shocks when these were sitting in the garage. the car doesnt sit ridiculously low and i dont drive like a dick, so hopefully this works in my favor. and godley26det i have enjoyed reading your build thread, sux about blowing the 25det though.

Well not much has been done lately. i took the car too Tauranga for the dyno day, made a whopping 117kw lol (the auto wasnt playing ball, and fuel pump is shot). that was actually the last time i drove my car (7 weeks ago :eek:), i went to go start it the other day and the battery was completely flat, so i decided to look into battery charges. I had read about the CTEK chargers, and they came highly regarded by stalker, so i was convinced. i bought the mid range one, the MXS 5.0 for $150 delivered to my door. Just installed it this afternoon, it was so easy only took 5 mins.
heres some pics:






so i guess that means my skyline is a PLUG-IN now :evil:

i have a couple of other things i am about to order also:
walbro gss341 nissan fuel pump
3" bellmouth front/dump pipe
