@Zeberdeecaddy
Doesn’t the flip in original shackles cause the axle to sit off centre? Was thinking of buying the full kit but if it can be done on the cheap then I’m all for that!

Yes it does .

I forgot to add I fitted a set of relocation plates I found cheap on ebay .

From memory it’s 15mm further back .

@exuptony , the person i got mine from doesn’t seem to do them anymore .

I paid about £30 delivered , could probably make a set cheaper , but I can’t be bothered messing about with stuff like that .

@carolthecaddy , thanks , it’s pretty much done .

I won’t be doing anything other than service work now as I’ve decided it’ll be sold at the beginning of next summer .

Thanks , it turned out how imagined .

I’m a big fan of the ‘lifted’ look .

But never quite convinced myself to go down that route .

Shows that there’s room for every taste & need .
