Default Jag Rear End Shortening

Hi Rebel1,

I did contact Hardy Spicers and they are happy the shorten the Axles/Driveshafts but wont touch the Control Arms. The other Drivesaft shops in Brisvegas were either the same or not sure. Through the Qld Cobra Club I have made contact with Scott as you mentioned and he is sidetracked at the moment but says he will be able to look at for me in a the not too distant future which sounds ok.

The whole shortening scenario seems a bit of a negative for both compliance, cost and reliablility hence my query about being able to mix E-Type bits. To a degree I would however think that a well engineered job would be as strong if not stronger?

Thanks again for the feedback - I am learning fast and enjoying the challenge.

Mine were shortened by the Kit supplier in WA and the tubing used is 75mm OD.

Have you spoken to Scott Hampson regarding the shortening of lower control arms?. He may know where you can get them shortened. He has worked on many many cobras with Jag suspension.

His site: Welcome to Venom Custom Fabrications

Remember any mods to suspension bits need your engineers approval.
