    I'm more impressed by the amount of coke you have stored in the back ground. That is one good deal on the shocks

    I know mate I was actually planning on buying B8's and H&R's new this weekend too!
    I know B8's are the dampers to have on here but I thought for the money I'd give these FSD's a go, hopefully they should be ok

    Result then, for that price I would give them a go to, but from what I've read they're more comfortable than the B8's but not as performance orientated. It's up to you at the end of the day bud, you could sell them on but you'd still have to fork out over £500 for the Billies...

    That's funny, just posted about the FSD's as I'm looking into getting a set. Are those lowering springs you've got there? Will be interested to know how they ride when you get them fitted. Are you on stock suspension now?

    Lol! I killed that one! On my third one now theres a plastic bit in the gearbox that snaps off and it's cheaper to just buy body only of the whole drill than buy the part to fix it! Great drill though as is the rest of the 18volt lithium range in my opinion

    Not a dry liner mate I'm a Carpenter although plasterboard may have played a big part in killing that drill too...

    Ah oh I've got my hands on a neuspeed rear arb but not sure weather to buy it or not? I've sort of said I will have it but here's some pics he sent me

    [​IMG]

    He wants £70 for it? Does anyone think that's a good price? As again it's had less than 5 thousand miles of use

    That's the thickness of it?

    Sounds cheap enough to me, just weather its too thick compared to front arb? I always thought having similar sized arbs was best?

    Im Most probably wrong though

    I re used my original drop links when I fitted my r32 rear arb. Also 19mm. One of the best mods I have done. Handling is vastly improved. Really flat. Suspension is standard too!

    I'd say go for it, or get an r32 one. Same size, but cheaper 2nd hand. Although that one is probably better quality
