It's just not appropriate to drop a bomb like that without some detail. What the hell are you thinking, leaving us hanging from a thread whilst we drool in anticipation? Come on, DUDE, spill the freakin' beans man!

obtaining the answer requires purchase of the spring plates!

Ah, I just epiphanied that I shoulda listened to Petey in the first place and gone coilovers back there but I'd already bought the adj plates and was intent to stick with the plan.

Talking to Frank the other night though sealed the deal, he's running 500lb back there sans T-bars. My car is predominantly a street car w/ some track, so the setup should suffice.

Buuuuut... gotta sell my crap of course to make it happen.

so

Any takers?

Say Mark, I'm betting that new GP white whale of yers could use these heh heh...

Wish it were something more glamorous than that as you've all seemingly built it up to be, but it's just that.

I sell stuff too cheap... when I put on weltmiester sway away adjustable springplates around 6 years ago I sold my 1987 ones for $75.
I think the resale value of original used parts has gone up since then. They sold quick anyway and the guy was happy.

Hi Paul, I just found your for sale post for your new sway away springplates and made a post correcting wrong information from someone that said your's are for G50 cars.

Good luck selling them I think your price on them is very good.

I found a pic of Paul's project. I'm not sure where it is headed but maybe we shouldn't judge until it is complete...
