16 mm od, 10mm id, and I think 16 mm long. They're about a pound from the bearing place near my work, but will need the flange machining off. Give me a shout if you struggle, I'll pick one up and ma ...

When I did mine I had the entire internals out of my diff put into the steel third member. The important thing is that your ring and pinion ratios still match.

I have 235/75 15's on zero offset wheels, albeit 15x7's and not 15x8's, and run a 3" Calmini kit with no body lift. They tyres only rub at the extreme ends of rear articulation, and then it's n ...

That's a shame. Is it not worth getting another donor Vit and putting your body on it?

No, but the rev counter picks up from a plug on the back of the engine block. Apparently.

For a long time I've said someone needs to put an Outback, or the new Arctic kit, on a long wheelbase chassis. That just make me realise how right I was. I think that looks oddly right, I like it.

No, the slight rearward movement will be taken by the drive shafts. The position of the wheels is fixed by the control arms(assuming it's on a Vit, that is).

It's the 29" tyres and 3" calmini lift that give it the look. Also the late front grille updates the look because the early grille was very eighties style.



Agreed, that's why mine r ...
