My lwb zook

I've had this zook now for about 8 months this is what it looked like when I got it
its a n/t lwb 1984



I've put together a few spoa zooks before and all seem to work really well of road so I got some wt diffs

Here's some pics








got my hi steer useing merc arms



and started removing the spring perchs on the wt diffs



and heres the new ones in the making



me and my mate dazza fitted a 2" body lift to her all went real smooth I used the body lift out of my swb lucky I had some extra 2" blocks in the shed to make up for the lwb all done and also lifted the front bumper will get some more pics of it done tommorrow but heres some inbetween shots I took






I did a step by step on how to mod your 1.3 carbi hat to suit the 2" body lift

first remove the carbi hat
you will need a piece out of a vs commodore (its a sedan sold here in OZ) air box see pic remove the piece using a allen key be careful not to rip the gasket as you will need this

hold the piece over the carbi hat, mark & drill holes



place gasket over carbi hat and using original allen key bolts and some 8mm nuts bolt unit together





you will end up with something like this




then remove the stud on top of the carbi



you will need a long bolt like this




bolt it on the carbi



and connect the air box





then your all done



heres how she looks with the body lift in

I fitted some extra power sockets to the zook and a USB power supply wired up to the duel battery took about 1/2 hour and I used 6mm wire so there wont be any voltage drop 8)
