    GD MK3 deep dishes rear wheels

    Has anyone changed the rear wishbones/driveshafts (and wheels) on their GD to deeper dish wheels?
    I know they did it on “wheeler dealers” but took the body off to do it, surely that’s not necessary?

    It's definitely doable Simon.
    After much pushing from customers Andy made the parts available.
    Have a chat with Jimmy Jazz (Alan) on here.
    I know he's on hols at the moment though.

    No need to remove the body at all, it just made better TV. E-Type shorter driveshafts & wishbones, new wheels- Job done

    I think you want old S Type (pre XJ) shafts and arms or get Ben at "Simply Performance" to shorten the standard ones for you.
    I think the E Type ones are the same length as the later XJ ones.

    You can use the old S type driveshafts and arms. These are approx 40mm shorter compared the the ‘normaal’ ones.
    I changed them on my GD, but also changed the body from Mk3 to a new Mk4 body
