  1. Gte exclusive lowering spring set

    Just fitted the rear springs I got from garymanc and has lifted the rear by 15mm so the kilsen catalogue is correct and will lower a gte/exclusive by 15mm.its probably me even when I first got the car I thought could do with being a bit lower. will be getting shorter shocks next year many thanks for the help and advice.
  2. Gte exclusive lowering spring set

    Again even springs advertised as gte springs state 1970-1988.unless someone knows for sure which springs I need I'm not going to get any as rapidly running out of money
  3. Gte exclusive lowering spring set

    I would love to put standard springs in but no one lists springs for an exclusive only b's up to 88 and I have read a few posts of people getting springs to find they have gained a few cm's.pic of old rear and 40mm lowering spring
  4. Gte exclusive lowering spring set

    Pics are front then back wheel didn't do a before shot as was all up on axle stands when i found three broken springs probably sat lower then.i was looking for around standard height anyway and the kit lowers a b by 40 mm may get a 60mm kit with shocks next year as all out of cash and kidney's.
  5. Gte exclusive lowering spring set

    Just to finish this subject off this is how an exclusive looks with a kilen 40mm lower spring set only problem is rear springs will come unseated if the axle is allowed to drop so will need shorter travel shocks.is it me or does it look a bit higher now ?.
  6. Gte exclusive lowering spring set

    I can't get away with a 40mm drop as will never get it off the drive due to a slope and checked return policy and if fitted no refund that's why I need to know.
  7. I need a set of springs for an exclusive and see lowering sets for b's as the exclusive was lowered at production would this lower it further or where they fitted with shorter uprated springs anyone out thier changed Thiers how did it turn out.also the bottom turn on my front springs go straight for he last couple of cm's to seat into the lower arm is this the same with b springs.due to one of the fronts snapping this is the only thing keeping me off the road after nearly ten years and already harvested one of my wife kidneys to pay for the welding.

  10. Boot drain outlets

    Pulled the tank out to clean out old stale fuel and noticed two drain outlets( the type that normally have drain hoses running into) roughly level with the bottom of the tank next to the inner arch's do these have a purpose?
