SS1 Lockheed Brake Master Cylinder

The kit arrived and I fitted the seals no problems. The seal numbers in the kit appear to match the original seals.

SS1 rear coilovers.

I've ordered new springs from Gaz. I've just read in an earlier post about compressing and fitting springs and it seems it can be a little iffy but in the same post someone said you don't need to compress the new springs to refit if the shocks have adjustable collets. I'am still waiting for the shoc...

SS1 rear coilovers.

The new coil overs I've bought are adjustable Gaz whatevers, are they a pain to refit? or is just a case of sliding on the spring and tightening up the adjustable collets and refitting. Thanks

SS1 rear coilovers.

Do I need to compress the rear springs on the car for removal? Or is just a case of undoing the top bolt and then pulling the spring and shock out. Thanks

Gaz Shocks for SS1.

If I'd 200lbs front and rear then that would be OK? I understand that factory spec was 180lbs all round. It seems to me you guys have put a lot of time effort and research into springs and dampers, is this for competing and or road use? I'am not a purest I need it right but if 180lbs gave the SS1 it...

Gaz Shocks for SS1.

Your first paragraph might as well be written in Chinese. Not got a clue what it means although no doubt a lot of the forum members will. Now I do understand your second paragraph and I thank you for that. As I said earlier the set up will be 190lbs on the front because that's what I was sold and 20...
