an uneducated answer (being that I'm no expert or mechanic) but would altering the camber combat body roll? Shorten the drop links? Lowered 60mm should have got rid of all the body roll but obv not lol, is it running uprated shocks or have u just stuck lowering springs on the original shocks cos that may be the problem.

Couple of ideas there to get u thinkin lol


or just tell me to shut up if I'm talkin shit haha

Not realy a plating kit per say, it seems to be the trend to seem weld it all up, think that she deserves a little more work, and yeah I'm gonna get poly bush kit, but its gona be around 200, I rekon we Defo need a pipe bender, the shell needs stifening up, and I'm drsprate to sort shoks and these shonkey tyres and wheels am running atm are terable was thking about looking into cross bracing and doing a bit of maths to work out best place to strengthen up, maybe even take engine out again and seem weld the engine bay?
