[T3] Saggy Rear End (was Re: Bella!)


<x-flowed>I've been thinking for a while that I'd like to get the rear end of my fasty sorted out as I really don't like the over cambered look. I thought I could use something like these:

Seems a bit OTT but whats the chance of finding NOS trailing arms for a type3, and then have them go saggy over time too!
With the exchange rate the way it is at the moment they're not too expensive either.
Only problem I can see would be the damper mounting and the bump stops. I think I have done the damage to the current arms by driving for 3 years along heavily speed-bumped roads, and early on I bottomed out the suspesion horribly hard on a few potholes before I sorted out the bump-stops that had rusted off. I think you need reinforced suspension to drive in London ;-)


Anyone have a similar set up on their type3's?
