Sometimes I just watch other people's threads,youtube and such to keep up the motivation or if you can a trackday works nicely too even as a spectator.

Its been a very long break at the moment but with FCS coming up a few passenger thrills should get me going again i hope... This thread is very inspiring though

22mm torsion bars by Torsion Performance:





Fits very nicely and by hand,seems to be of good quality for an affordable price.
In the process of being painted,same as ARB.

Top coated the struts and pressed in the bearings (still have to fit the circlips):

Driver side:









Passenger side:











Love this tool,made the pressing effortless.

Out of interest, how come you went with 22mm torsion bars?

Struts look really tidy! Well worth the effort you've put in.

Thanks,chose this for some track-day use and should still be not too harsh to use on the road and also can match this up with the Gaz coilovers at the front,what's your set-up on your 106?
