I decided that the coilies wound down just wasnt enough so...

I've hub modded the fecker as well..

Plenty of measuring and trail fitting then i cut some stainless tubing to sleeve the coilies..

Long and low budget T5 build Pbucket

Long and low budget T5 build Pbucket

32mm stainless spacer cut and the brake pipe ect bracket removed

Long and low budget T5 build Pbucket

Then welded together.

Long and low budget T5 build Pbucket

And fitted to the strut

And then i fired the coilie back on the van

Long and low budget T5 build Pbucket

And dropped the bugger through the hub..
