G'day Dave, Wow, this just proves I should look on the forum a bit more often! Am pretty keen on your 3x2 arms, have some questions to see if they'll suit the purpose. I still have your number from a bit back when we chatted but if it's ok with you I might ask here on the club forum just to get a bit of correspondence going...(although it might just show how green I actually am with this buggy/ vw thing :lol: ) pud

G'day Pud, I know what you mean about getting back into the forum, I need to do the same :lol: . The bookface app is pretty good especially for photos and quick updates, but this is where the info really is.

No problem at all conversing thru the forum, so ask away. If you need photos I might have to email them to you unless someone can educate me on how to post them here (since photobucket stopped hosting) :oops: .

Ok Dave, am a bit embarrassed to ask this first one, but 3x2 refers to 3 inches longer & 2 inches wider than standard, (not 3 wider & 2 longer)??
Next is axle length, is this still the same? As I have the 930's in mine now & be good to have spares
I assume they are compatible with the standard pivot mounts, shock mounts (not sure about shock length though), double spring plates etc??
And yes, wouldn't mind a gander at some pics, seeing I'm not a facebooker I'll pm you my email if you have the time to send. Thanks, pud

Edit- forgot one thing, can't quite picture if things would be interchangeable for an option to keep the wide 5 setup,..... pics may help :)

Hey Pud, ok so running thru the questions:
yes I think the 3 x 2 refers to 3 back & 2 wider (that was my impression anyway - so don't feel embarrassed, ur not alone :? ). I have taken some pics that I will send to you with some measurements so you can compare them with a standard rear arm to confirm that and give you an idea of the dimensions etc.
The axle is longer (EMPI PN 16-2207-0).
Shock mount needs to be welded onto the rear arms. The position will depend on the type of shock you are using, but Paul at Steelart did have the tabs (I guess you could fab ur own). The pivot mount is standard. I can't comment on the double spring plates, but I have them on my vehicle - I never got around to fitting them for size, so I don't know.
Re the wide 5 set up, you should be able to sort that out as these were modified from the ford 5 stud to toyota 6 stud pattern using an adapter plate. Not sure on the legality in Tas for that type of mod.
Back to you :lol:

Cheers Dave

Got the pics thanks Dave, very comprehensive!! thanks for taking the time to measure them up :D Will pull mine to bits through the week to see where it's at, recon if I did keep the wide 5 & ran the rims I've got on at the moment, would end up pretty wide....match the front though :twisted: :lol: Need to do something with the front guards anyway, so guess it'd square it up & do both ends while am at it... :lol:

hey Pud,

If you go ahead with this you might have to think of a new name for her - "chubby" might not suit her anymore, but then again... :lol:

I was considering widening the rear guards as well when I bought the arms originally as I have my air filter mounted up there. I even went back to school to learn how to fibreglass properly :P, but after sitting with them on the "to do" list for so long and the need to downsize my shed & contents, I gave the idea away :|

Amazing what you can learn at TAFE :shock:

It was fun but pretty basic - not much more than I already learned as a kid fixing my dinged surfboards :P

G'day Dave, yeah might have to hone my glassing skills too :) Sorry about taking so long to reply, you never seem to get the spare time you think you'll have....
Had a bit of a poke about & measure up, overhang probably didn't end up as much of a deal as I thought it would, mocked up where the existing rims would end up...

Matches the front...might end up easier to cut the body straight down the middle & add a few inches to widen the whole thing :lol: :lol: , still need to measure a bit more, by your picks of measurements, the spring plate length seems a bit odd compared to mine but it may just be the angle of the dangle of me with the ruler. will give you a tingle a bit later in the week. Thanks, Pud

hehe, ...yeah, ....well,....as has been mentioned previously chubby's gender might soon have to be known as "him", cos from previous experience in years gone by, if you happen to want action out of "her", it's not a good move calling "her" chubbybutt ....or fatass.... :lol:

Yeah no worries Pud - you still have my number I'm guessing :?: .

Good advice treading lightly with the choice of names; I may have to change the "tardis" to "incontinence" due to all the small oil puddles left laying around :shock: :lol:

Cheers
