Very true, however with Racelands and the Strut bags there are some EVERY tight tolerances. This car will be using a combination of my strut cap spacers and my new hyrbid/rebuildable caps to gain a little extra room!
Can you provide the specs on the pic you posted?
I know what you mean about the tight tolerances... as you know I've been contemplating the raceland/bag set up (among other options) and I've done the measurements... it'll be tight. This will be the 3rd iteration of a front bag set up and needless to say I want to get it right this time. I'll let my motor swap preoccupy my attention until you get this coupe buttoned up... should help make my decision easier
Back in oh.... 2004? 2005? before anybody in North America wanted their VW to go up and down the Blaupunkt show rabbit (I'm sure you know the one) was being parted and I bought its one off air ride kit done by Air Ride Tech. It was an interesting mix of top of the line off the shelf stuff (rears are shockwaves, dakota gauge/switch panel, really nice valves, etc.) and cobbled together crap (the front air struts). It sat way too high for my liking in the front due to the strut length so v2. found mustang II rear shocked re purposed as strut inserts. It actually worked quite nicely except the shafts weren't strong enough to be hammered like struts are.
I can't seem to find any pics of the set up atm... not sure if I even took any.
