(during removal it crumbled)

make sure you get that gasket, when I installed mine the gasket crumbled, done 35km.

Gasket, only if damaged, bolts same. They can round or snap off heads or stretch threads. Only use hardened bolts.

Alrite cool. Is there any point in changing the o-ring and bolts as well then Rob?

Waste of money replacing perfectly good hangers. Save it for something functionally useful.

Howdy all, when installing a TBE a recent thread clarified that I should also change the downpipe to turbo o-ring and the downpipe bolts.

Is there any benefit in also changing to the Powerflex exhaust bushes? Cheers

I think with WALK, because of the extra caster it self centres stronger and maybe people mistake that for TS. Before quaife, my car used to make a bee line for the other side of the road. LSD stopped that.

Sorry my bad. I thought you said 150k not 15k . They will be fine mate. I just installed the b12 kit in mine that had seen track days. It feels wicked.
September 12, 2014, 08:53:47 PM
And they can be serviced.....
Unlike other shocks.
September 12, 2014, 08:53:00 PM
15k should be fine if the price is right, so long as the shocks are not damaged.
Bilsteins will do over 80k and still work acceptably well.

At 150000kms, Id pretty much take it off their hands for nothing.
September 12, 2014, 07:43:55 PM
The WALK keep weight over the front. The extra torque steer is probably the little bit more grip you have now and the tyres are ripping at the road with grip. I have noticed this too sometimes

Just a quick note to welcome crispymk2 to the Mod Squad!  Thumbsup

For those that can remember, our previous Mod from the west was Kashmir Mafia, but since he moved on from the XR5 scene some time ago it seemed an official presence was lacking for the WA member base.

crsipymk2 has been a valuable contributor to the forum for quite some time. His primary role will be to keep an eye on the WA section of the forum and update databases etc. He is also keen to organise more gatherings for local members. Good news for all.

Thanks for jumping on board Crispy!  Smiley
