Default I want to borrow some rear springs for a few weeks

Hey guys,

This thread is mainly for SA members here, but will welcome all offers.

I have family coming over from England in a few weeks, I have never met them, they are family members from my wifes side and from what I have heard they are lard asses (heavy). Im gonna be taking a few days off work to take them sight seeing and such, and my poor suspension will be sitting on the bump stops carting their butts around town.

Im currently looking at borrowing off someone some rear xr6 height springs for a few weeks to suit live rear axle AU if anyone has any spare. Will consider some stock height rear ones too. I just want to use them over the 2 weeks they are hear and when they go home I will put my Eibachs back in.

Does anyone have a pair sitting in their shed not doing anything that I could borrow please?

Just get a set of stockies from the wreckers, can't see it costing more then $50, probably cheaper then return post interstate and definetly easier.

Interesting. The back of my car will sit up like this after I fit George's springs in a few weeks.

I got a full set of ticky springs for live rear axle, you will have to come to Golden Grove to get them though.
