    70 mile round trip for me. Sound proofing and stereo helps - bung on a podcast and bobs yer mothers brother. It’s not so bad except the journey always ends up with me selling juicy motors (which I...

    I bought myself a clio 172/182 for the same reason. Not quite the MPG above, but high 30’s with a heavy foot is no worries. All you need to do is change the gearstick bushes and it drives like a new...

    I've seen that motor running around too. He was parked up very near to where I live, and I give him a flash but we were going in different directions and I think I surprised him. He saw me though....

    Haha great advice gents, cheers. I'll get a pic up and you can see it at some point. I think you're right though in that it is buggered just not obviously (unless it has a 350kg or so resting on it).

    Incredible pics, lovely motor and damn you did a lap on the ring! Was it super bumpy? Scary? Worried about crazies overtaking? What an awesome thing to do, nice one matey!

    Quick update. Replaced my hub and it drives nicely. The one i took off however looks like new, still has grease in and spins amazingly well in my hand. I have noticed that a vibration at speed has...

    Ok well fingers crossed that ain't the case. I'll probably avoid driving now till my hubs arrive as I noticed noise even in a straight line today.

    Oh yeah I meant to ask. Would it be possible to have a situation where there is play after an extended drive but not before?
  9. Thanks man, I gave it a wiggle this morning...

    Thanks man, I gave it a wiggle this morning (cold) and no play, and again no noise until I reached my destination. No play on arrival unjacked. Hoping for parts tomorrow and if so I'll get to work....

    Cheers, noted. I'll double check the play as well as it wasn't jacked so could be mistaken. I deffo thought it rocked a bit.

    Still noisy, but perhaps less noisy. In fact there was a moment this morning where I thought the wheel bearing fairies came during my drive and it just felt smoother and like it rolled easier. Lasted...

    holy bat shizzle mark, I don't know what that's meant to be but it ain't no bearing!!! Not sure if I feel better or worse now haha, mine is ringing away but I don't think it's going to fall off quite...

    Same again this morning. Set off and it's fine, but once warm it's like a really loud beer bottle being blown over sound. Can't be doing much good, and it still feels like it's nervous on the...

    Haha that's encouraging! Yesterday after my hour drive to work, turning right was embarrassingly loud. Sounded like a train stopping (or failing to stop) and with the wind on the way home my mind was...

    Cheers buddy that sounds like good advice. It's not noisy in a straight line, and not when cold so bus jumping and rally's aside I reckon I might be alright :) banzai!!! :wack:

    Thanks man :thumbs:
  16. Wheel bearings... How long until my wheel falls off?

    Just wondering. Mine makes a good bit of noise after a long journey and turning right is increasingly loud. Given the m4 between me and work, I thought I'd probe (heh) you lot for some odds on the...

    Cheers lads, guess these are the ones then although maybe not the best price.

    Agreed. Just having trouble finding bushed ones sold in this country. That said, DW site has a guide saying "this is a bit complex, we recommend extended by 10mm for most applications" (paraphrasing...

    Actually that's a really good idea seeing as the rear shock is so easily removed. not so sure my local hunter bods would go for it though, they're more slaves to the machine than geometry experts....
  20. Had a read of this...

    Had a read of this and becoming more confident that what I need is traction arms, and I think the bushes are ok - does anyone have any input on how to work out length? Pretty sure that the guys with...

    Yep stock traction arms. They are suspect number 1 - I can move them with my hand (roll forward and backward) but not in/out/up/down so just want to make sure I don't waste money.

    Any further...
  22. Rear suspension arms for slight bump steer on a daily driver

    I've had a good old go at this one, but I just can't pin it.

    I've got an S15 which is lowered by 35mm or so. Not much. Wheels are 9" wide an ET25, but no spacers. Subframe bushes have been...

    Welcome! And thanks for the help with the wheel bearings ;) Damn I thought I had a lot of 200sx's in my time... I thin you're bordering on needing help Valters ;) I checked out your site in your sig...

    No I meant potential travel, but your right. The spring probably just moves more, plus there is probably way more than there is room for the wheel to actually move into anyway. And yeah, standard...

    Wow that seems like loads, but I suppose as you go softer the fraction increases so much more with every kilo you remove from the spring. I read somewhere that Nismo spec is something like 5.5kg at...
