Re: Lowering steering positions help!

bottom picture can you not take the two bolts out and re-drill the holes in the chassis further down. then bolt them back in further down?


thats the things that look like bolts right at the top.

You need bracketry at the transverse bolt end to lower it.

Re: Lowering steering positions help!

your lowering the wrong part if you look under the bit of dash left you will see the 2 bolts that have to be made longer, the 2 nuts you tried lowering just have to be slackened off so you can have play at the front

the 2 bolts you need to space are at top of the picture, pretty much above the bolt that is going across under the column from side to side

Re: Lowering steering positions help!

Yeah i done it exactly the same way at the mini peeps, but instead of a U bracket i just used 2 bits of metal drilled 2 holes and wala

Car feels amazing now!!!!
