I'm starting a spec e30 build in about 2 weeks. I've got a bare body that I'll be adding reinforcements to the suspension pick up points via AKG. I'll then be transferring suspension parts from a convertible donor car using all poly bushings.

I didn't see anything in the rule book regarding quarter and rear windows. I'm assuming that the original glass has to stay in tact?

I'm buying offset diff, front ctrl and rear trailing arm bushings. Are offset bushings desirable or will standard bushings be enough to obtain a race alignment?

Regarding rear alignment, should I get both the camber and toe correction kits or just one or the other?

Thanks, can't wait to get started

The easiest way to read the SpecE30 rules is that if it doesn't say you can, you can't. Apply that to the windows. I am running the standard diff mount, and I haven't seen any discussions about the offset diff bushing. I also haven't seen anyone not put in rear camber and toe adjustments at the same time. The best solution currently available appears to be the Ireland Engineering serrated adjusters. By the way this forum doesn't get much viewing since we have a forum at www.spece30.com . If you have additional questions, I would recommend going there.
