R31 wagon.
« on: August 16, 2011, 06:16:06 PM »
Had this wagon for a few months
Hoping someone on here could answer a few questions
I need to lower it 110mm but that leaves me with 70mm shock travel
Can i buy shorter inserts? where from?
Will be able to cut the weld out of the hub and shorten the body for them to fit

this is how it should look

You can get similar ones brand new off trademe for under $400 for a set of 15x8 and you can also get 15x10's for just under $500. But you can only really use them on 4 stud and you need to purchase 4 to 6 stud adaptors but you can get them in 5x114.3 but they cost lots more I think!
Im getting there slowly at the moment

Mangels is a brand like ROH or Work, the Modulars where a type of wheel & had circle holes and these type are called Wellers I think.

Those look like (what here in the US are) common stamped steel wheels... there are places here that can make you a wheel in whatever diameter and offset and bolt pattern you want, for about $50-80 USD a piece... offered in white, black, black with a little red pinstripe on the lip, and of course, chrome.

Cheap way to get a wheel in whatever spec you want, but steel wheels are HEAVY.

if your only problem is non captive springs, there are probably shorter shocks out there.

Sorted it with S13 front suspension and made coil overs to fit them that drop the whole shock and spring down so it wont come uncaptive
Still used a 65mm spring
In the rear i still need to sort shocks but will prob shorten standard

quick fix in the rears are a R32 front shock with the rear top hat changed over to suit and maybe trim a coil out. I'm guessing the wagon set up is the same as the sedan that is..... thats all my mate done with his R31.

It has a flat diff like a VL commy.. I just cut the spring mounts off  the diff and made new ones to suit coil over springs. Got heaps of them at different lengths and weights so have sets for track or street
