It's a completely different car from a different manufacturer, so I'd hazard a guess as to the answer being a hard 'no'.

Rear guards rolled so now I can finally chuck it around without worrying about chewing the tyres. Went for a spirited drive to appreciate how good these are out of the box!

Not too much happening here. Long overdue oil change (oops), thanks Jesse for the hookup.

Hello, fellow Adelaide folk! Interested to see how this fares on the track, recently got into another BJ chassis earlier this year and am having a lot of fun with even just changing wheels and tyres.

That's good to know. Camber bolts are always another option I suppose. Not that I think I'd need a lot of it, but the Evo wheels are pretty flush and I don't want no scrub haha. (if I lower it,...

Aye. I guess it really depends how much you want camber-tops on the front as they seem to be exclusively pillow-ball.

Is there any much camber adjustment with the stock setup for the BJ?

You could make a coilover as comfortable as a spring/shock combo if you really wanted, but it would certainly require revalving. I think BC can do that free of charge? Or that might just be custom...

****n wildlife! When I hit a roo a few years ago it was similar. Shattered headlight, dented bonnet, pock marks in the bumper.

How deep are your pockets is the question. I just fit some 17x8 +38 wheels and they are only just under the guards. Imo it's silly to run the amount of camber you'd need to fit 0 offset wheels.

IIRC the MPS has a big single piston but the standard 6 are a smaller twin, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Not gonna lie, it is a bit of a bugger with the other car!

Having said that, not something I'd really do, but I'm a curious soul and I like to see where cross-compatibility goes.
