    Default 360 wheel refurbishment

    i'm looking at having my 360 wheels re-done, can i use standard axel stands or is there a problem ?? once did the 348 and it was a pain.. ended up on wooden blocks (i did not do the 348 myself)

    Ian,

    The front is easy as you can place a stand under the front suspension member or where it runs to the main chassis legs although I have some 4x2 blocks that I use under there as for me it is more secure and I can keep the car lower to the ground and level.

    The rear is harder as the undertray covers all of the chassis apart from the 'wings' which are the cross braces that the anti-roll bar runs through.
    I know some people use these but they are hollow and if you put a stand in the wrong place it will collapse.

    I'd remove the undertray and use the rear suspension mounts as per the front if I was leaving the car in the air.

    I'm not a fan of most axle stands as most have a V in the top designed for old fashioned live axles. I'm looked for a set of flat topped ones ATM.

    Let us know if you find flat top stands.
    I use a cut up hockey puck to fill in the gap in my V topped stands

    Been offered loads of axel stands, will try to get the wheels off this week. Thanks for the info. .. Might be worth getting somebody else to do it though.. But the cost of painting is so low,.. Seems the messing around of getting the wheels off and on.. The tyres as well... Is the pain

    If you are going to keep the 360 long term, invest in another spare set of wheels.

    I think mine will need doing too. Are they not Magnesium alloy as the F355 wheels are?

    No. There's a stamp on the back that confirms the material type.

    I'll check. So were any 360 wheels Magnesium then? I'm guessing not. Sure I had read it somewhere.
