Nice project, looks good.
Have you spoken to an engineer about getting the suspension complianced?
I would be really surprised if the Jer-Fab air beam could be made legal in Australia. It looks like it is made from steel plate welded to an original trailing arm, which is generally a big no-no for engineering compliance.
