I can't believe such an oversight.

There's less than a quarter inch gap now so when I go over even a small bump ... clang ..clang ..clang.

Not sure what to do right now ...maybe take the 1.5" blocks off and shave them down to an inch?

what a bugger! :wall:

I belive the American English translation would be= Exhaust pipes.:)

G'day.
sorry buddy, what I meant to say was the exhaust pipes which bend over the diff have now dropped 1.5" after lowering which only leaves about a quarter inch clearance between the diff housing and the pipes. Not good over bumps.

cheers.

My vote would be to have the extractors corrected. The stance in the picture is perfect. This is working under the assumption that the picture is of the lowered car. Is this correct?

That's correct Kent.
I installed them only a few weeks ago in my Xmas holidays.

I would imagine that to correct the pipes would mean to unbolt from the extractor flanges, take out, correct, check and reinstall.

Damn!, I was hoping I wouldn't have to do that length.

cheers.
