Springs... 2.5" 2.25" whats the difference

Right, the overall diameter is 80mm, the bit inside the spring is 59mm.
From the top, the socket dia is 26mm and the hole for the damper piston rod is 20mm.

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Another busy day in the man-cave, fitted the final front suspension bits, shimmed the calipers, fitted the pads, shockers and springs and finished the chassis brake pipes. Did the final steering rack assembly and rough adjusted the toe-in. Raised and roped the chassis to the beams, took out the wood...

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Chassis righted, back axle, some of the front suspension and the new brake pipes fitted. It's a pound to a pinch I've used the wrong hole in the chassis, there's a group of four, to bolt the 3 way connector and I failed to photograph the old chassis and pipes! Hey ho!

I must say I'm a little surprised at the points awarded, I'm drivin' the wheels orf my car, PB after three years out of sprinting and yet the heritage cars are still miles off the small sports. I'm not goin...
