=======================

Here is a link from 4wd Action that gives some of the latest info for you guys in NSW.
If it happens in NSW, it will probably happen in other states...feel free to drop the Honourable Minister an email, if you are that way inclined.
If you agree with him...good on you, thats your call.
If you dont...send him an email.
I did, and I dont even live there

Cheers
Dave

Hi Guys,

The NSW regulation changes which were supposed to take effect on the 1st of August, 2009 are now ON HOLD as confirmed by the minister of roads in the following media release letter:

quote:


NEWS RELEASE
MINISTER AGREES TO FURTHER CONSULTATION ON
CAR MODIFICATION LAWS
Wednesday 29 July 2009
Minister for Roads Michael Daley today met with representatives from the 4WD community and car industry who asked for the introduction of proposed vehicle modification rules to be delayed and for more time to consult.
Mr Daley said he agreed to put the rule changes on hold and that more consultation was needed following the meeting.
“I’ve listened to feedback from the industry and the community, and have agreed to set up a working party to look more closely at how we are going to address this road safety issue,” he said.
“All of those who attended today’s meeting agreed that safety is paramount and that unsafe modifications of vehicles do need be stamped out.
“The working group will include representatives from the NSW Centre for Road Safety, Four Wheel Drive NSW-ACT, Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association, the Australian 4WD Industry Council as well as other agencies and experts,” Mr Daley said.
Executive Director of Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association Stuart Charity said this was a terrific outcome.
“We’re passionate about road safety and we understand the intent of the regulation is to make the roads safer,” he said.
We’re looking forward to working towards a practical solution that meets road safety objectives while also taking industry views into account,” Mr Charity said.
Greg Redfern from Four Wheel Drive NSW-ACT also welcomed the outcome and said the working group would have their full support.
“We want to eliminate unsafe practices in the driving community and we’ll work with the government to make sure these new regulations meet those objectives without any adverse consequences for the motoring community at large,” he said.
“We all agree that there is no place for extreme and illegal modifications, but the clubs in our association follow a strict code of conduct and ethics, and we want to make sure they’re not punished,” Mr Redfern said.

Re: T30 Suspension Lift


I found out MIDAS use King Springs (one of the brands I was already considering - I've had their lowered springs before on another vehicle), so their quote is starting to sound pretty darn good. The cheapest I've found a set of King Springs previous to this is $330 on ebay.

So comparing to the Blue Max quote, I'm starting to be swayed toward the cheaper option as it seems to simply be a very keen price rather than sacrificing quality.

Does that change your thinking at all Dave?

Anyone else know something I should be thinking about in the lift kit discussion?

Oh, and on asking for a quote from Fulcrum Suspensions, they have come back to me saying I will also need to change the struts. From what I've read on here, I wasn't thinking I would need to do that...

Good news for you Blues supporters. At least for the moment anyway. Might be off the radar at your State level for awhile, unless they start doing more back-room deals. And I though Anna B.Lie was a crock.

For your info4wd Action VSI Link

John, sorry mate just saw your post, if the springs are King Springs, it sounds like an awesome deal.

Re: T30 Suspension Lift


After reading through (at least the most of) this this thread, I ended up ordering the Superior Engineering 50mm spacers last week. Since my X-Trail is right-hand drive, I presume that I will need to fit the spacers opposite to how they are fitted to left-hand drive X-Trails (left side spacer goes on the right, both front and rear)?

On another note, do the Australian T30s have ESP? Have you guys re-calibrated the steering angle sensors after the lift?

I am also probably going to get the ARB OME 25mm lift springs and shocks after the stock shocks have worn out (car has now done 200 000km). I tried looking for photos of such a setup since at least one member has apparently fitted the same (or similar) combination, but could not find any...

We're right-hand drive in Oz as well, so you'd install them the same way as us - so if the left-hand drivers swap left to right, you'd keep them as they were originally intended emoticon

Ah, my mistake. Being a non-native English speaker, I confused right-hand drive with right-hand traffic. We've driven on the right since 1858 in Finland, so that means my car is actually left-hand drive.

Finally got the spacers yesterday (or rather, finally had the time to pick them up from customs) and now I'm a bit confused. It looks like the front spacers are identical, apart from the FDT/FPT-markings. I assume that means Front-Driver's-Top and Front-Passenger's-Top respectively? Even the arrows point in the same direction, which is funny since I thought they would fit the opposite way on the other side. Is the camber correction the only difference between the spacers? Because if so, that means that I would install them the same way as you (and not swap left to right) even though my driver's side is on the opposite side of the car. Then again if the front spacers are identical, it won't make a difference either way...

Oh well, I might need to contact SE again to make sure how these should be fitted.

Edit: well it seems the packet I got is missing the fitting instructions. Fortunately they are also available on their website, and seem to confirm the markings. Even more helpful is Rich and Kev's DIY-guide, BIG thanks to you for the write-up!

Re:


I would still contact them as to see whether the spacers you recieved are for a R/H drive or L/D X Trail, and then fit them accordingly.
Although they might look identical, there may be slight diferences which could make a huge difference to the camber.

Don't forget before and after pictures.

Yeah I did and they advised to fit them like I would on a RHD X-Trail.
