Thanks for the info. My paperwork is with the TAC this month so will wait for their comments. Know I need new wishbones and also balljoints (rubbers perished) which Mr Repco can supply (but only 1 Transit joint in the country) so considering upgrading uprights etc to something more modern (reduced weight). No point in getting wishbones from overseas as they are MIG welded - so agree with you - buy local from someone who knows what is required and can supply the paperwork to get through the system and back on the road.
Going to the Oz Clubbie Nationals in Jindabyne in November, but hope to have our car on the road before then - if I stroke the paintwork anymore she will need a complete respray!!
