Joined to get involved in the Forums. Been DIY since 1975 starting with Honda Civic. Bought new 1998 Camry CSX which has been totally reliable. Upgraded suspension with Boge struts and King Springs plus Ultra Racing front strut bar. Struts and springs were bought from Fulcrum Suspension. Camry now in the shed waiting for my boys to get their license in 2017.

Currently driving 2006 Aurion ATX (165,000KM) which was bought from a wholesaler via eBay in 2015. Got it for a good price because it has exhaust smoke on start up. After leaving a smoke screen when accelerating hard on the open highway and using about a litre of oil in 1 day, I learnt via Google search that it was oil sludge in the tappet covers affecting oil drainage so oil was being sucked into the intake via the crankcase ventilation valve (which was also blocked and needed to be cleaned). After engine flushes using 500ml of diesel and recently 500ml of transmission fluid in the engine oil, about 3 oil changes, and about 5 oil cartridge changes in about 3000km, the cylinder head is now looking totally clean.

Just bought fog lamps from wreckers at Rocklea (Gumtree ad) but will have to go back for the relay and the control arm stalk to get them working instead of just cosmetic. Planning upon replacing the struts with Sachs brand which come with a lifetime warranty. Already have Pedders heavy duty front springs bought via eBay so will have to get the Pedders rear springs.

What did you think of the UR Strut Brace? I constantly see posts from UR about them on Facebook, wondering what the quality is like, did you notice much difference and was it worth the price? Thanks Ashley and welcome
