I'm not sure yet I've not fitted them - they add 2mm to the track from memory and have been specifically designed for this job so i'm told. The quality looks good.
Hopefully they'll go on this week and I'll let you know how it goes. I'm bolting MWS EMPI 5's to them.

I chose the type 1 T2D kit as there is no chassis mods to do - I didnt really want to cut the chassis.

The T2D type 1 based kit is the Bug Box IRS kit sold on in the UK. It comes with all everything you need including springplates, clamp on brackets, drive shaft spacers etc etc. You need to supply gearbox, driveshafts and A arms. Ive had mine fitted for the best part of 5 years with no issues at all, I got it direct from Walter at Bug Box which worked out much cheaper at the time. For brakes I used an EMPI wide five disc kit which bolts straight on, only had to have some longer hand brake cables made up.
If you need them ive got some pre 63 bus brake drums in the garage
