    I've never been asked for my engineering papers, not from the RTA, nor the Police or the pinkslippers. The only person that has ever wanted to see them was the fellow who did the blue slip on it so the rego papers could be updated with the report number.

    But that said... if anybody does ask for it, then I want to have it and everything on the vehicle legal.

    I thought you didn't need engineering papers for a lift up to 50mm? Is NSW different to Qld?
    Up here in sunny Bananaland we don't need to front the vehicle for a blue slip to renew rego, just pay online. Very civilised. Treats vehicle owners like intelligent adults, rather than potential axe-murderers.

    The ruling is actually that a vehicles suspension can not be lifted by more than 1/3 of metal to metal suspension travel. 50mm gets thrown around by a lot of people, but its actually incorrect. The other thing which is incorrect is that it is within an engineers scope to approve suspension lifts outside of that guideline. The closest I've been able to get is by lifting 1/3rd metal to metal over the highest ride height specification from LandRover which equates to 4" on an Aus spec D2.

    I would also prefer the annual inspections. Not all people who are treated like intelligent adults are intelligent adults.

    That's very interesting - I'll remember that.
    I'm quite happy with 50mm - I don't need it any higher for my purposes.

    All of that is applicable for NSW though. I'm not sure what QLD's regulations are. They are meant to be a lot tighter.

    Really? I thought Qld was supposed to be more lenient. Must have heard that wrong...

    So true, so true.

    Have you got anything to say that we don't already know?

    When you're alone at night, which Land Rover do you fantasise about?
