Thought I would show you a photo mate
15 x 7 x 60, CRS drop spindles, standard HR springs, guards slightly rolled with a guard roller I bought from ebay, 100mm under the HR cross member which is the lowest point on my car
60 profile tyres just touch on full lock if I had 50 profile no problem

Hey Whealey
Mate my arms are not spaced out, there are I think 3 different arms which I know have been discussed here before do a search mate and you will see some photos; from memory the discussion was about the effect of the different arms on steering and I think that was why I stayed with the HR ones (it was a while ago  Grin)

Somebody on here should have a set of standard HR springs; I have not had any problem with the standard spring and have not found them too soft probably would have made the front end too stiff if I had of used beefed up springs.

Be careful with the tyre calculators mate I used one when I went looking for tyres for the new mags I bought for the sedan, before I got it registered ,and it said I could use 50 profile but when the engineer and I were doing the final checks before he did his last inspection he told me that I had to have a minimum of 60 profile to stay within the guide lines, this is WA I'm talking about maybe different with you side of things.

Always pays to double check or you may end up with a brand new set of 50 profile tyres sitting in you shed  Shocked Roll Eyes Embarrassed

What is best for the rear axle, Penrite Mild EP? Undecided

The diffs were originally filled with SAE90 oil too, though with an EP additive. EP additives reduce wear for high stress (Extreme Pressure) machinery. The Transoil 90 will not be suitable for the diff, as it has no EP additives.

Penrite Mild EP is an SAE110 oil... a little thicker than the SAE90 used in early Holden diffs, but could do the job. Could equally use an 80W-90 EP gear oil (SuperCheap and Autobarn have a few to choose from). The Mobilube HD 80W-90 would do the job if you had a bottle already, though it is really meant for heavy use (e.g. commercial) applications.

Cheers,
Harv

Helen the FC Ute & Panel Van brochure also shows the Ute with red seats with the top half solid and Black surrounds as per Gary’s top pic



Thanks, I've got a copy of the brochure but the quality isn't good enough to blow up and see that, very clear in yours, thanks

Many thanks for that information Harv.
So I will use the Penrite Transoil 90 SAE90 gear oil in the oil bath cleaner and in the gearbox.

Thanks neil. Am asking around for swaps on my low springs.

Are your hr arms spaced out at all?

Been using the tyre calculator to get it down to the mm
All this info is very helpful
