Mikey Bikey's Scimega

Hi Alan, excellent idea but pretty certain it wont work. They're the rear so can only fit on the inside. I will check though. I was going to fit them the correct way up but they are designed to be at the front where of course the trailing arms are.... sorry Mike, i meant swap from the left hand sid...
