i didnt know dave had done a write up on it.

but ive got 1.5" strut spacers, and it says on daves website, that the 2.5" strut spacers, can only be used with drop brackets, which ive now got.

so surely, i can keep my 1.5" strut spacers, and do this flip thing and gain another inch, without my drive shaft angle changing??

As long as your working it out Ben yes that should be ok, like you say with the smaller spacers and the flip top you would be at or near to the bigger (orange) spacers , which should only be used with drop brackets.

There's so many pictures missing from SS it's a shame :(

Almost every single one of my old posts with photos has them missing :evil:

As I've been posting link backs for people with Q's I've been replacing them but it's prety bloody teadious :twisted:

There's not only missing pics but for want of a better word damaged ones toooo...........

Is there a better answer to this painstaking, laborious prosess of individually replacing each pic :?: :D

No, sorry. :lol:

Also you're better off using your own hosting (unless you're dave) rather than attaching them as, if we need to move servers again, they may get damaged/lost again. :roll: :oops:

Photobucket is a pretty safe bet for all your photo needs. :-bd

I use photobucket but in the last few days its been playing up for me, when i click on the bottom link box, it normally says 'copied' then i cam paste into SS. Thats not comming up now and having to manually cut and paste across, which doent seem to work properley as it keeps pasting the same picture (not changing it as i want)
