Regular priceSale price
Unit price/ per
These allow for a 60mm wider wheel tub, but do not require any cutting into the chassis rails. Being a fabricated tub there is no provision for a standard Sedan shock, you can either run a Ute style shock/brackets, a coilover setup or a live axle.
Included in the kit- 2 x tub tops 2 x tub sides 1 x infill side panel 1 x bottom infill panel 2 x rear skid plate (Sedan will need to be cut to suit) 2 x shock recess plates (Sedan only)
PLEASE NOTE: Wide Tub kit's are STRICTLY only for cars that are converting to a Solid Axle diff setup or Solid Axle style Coilovers to the underside of the Chassis Rails. They will NOT fit a car that is retaining an IRS, whether it be a factory IRS or shortened.
The Wide tubs will tub the car hard up to the chassis rail (at the front side of the chassis, it will notch into the rail 15mm at the rear) keep in mind you can then cut these tubs down to suit your required width if need be. The Normal tubs are perfect for any Factory or Shortened IRS Setup, You will achieve a 60mm wider wheel tub which will leave more than enough room for a 275/60 Radial or 20/22" x 11" Rim.
Tubs are constructed from 2.5mm mild steel, tub tops are pre rolled yet require welding to assemble.
This is a DIY kit meaning the minitubs are supplied but will require you to mark and cut out the original wheel tubs and weld these in place. For a novice allow roughly 24-28 hours labour start to finish.
Please note- Tubs will not work with a standard Sedan fuel tank.
A custom width can be made up if need be. Tub Kits should only be installed by qualified fabricators. No instructions are supplied.
