Cheers Jonnie, and yeah should be alright.
The parts started to pile up. So, thought might as well put some of them on:
As said previously the first thing i wanted to do were the springs. Got these Eibachs for £120, not toooooo bad.
The first attempt didn't go to well if i'm honest; couldn't undo the top mount so i invested in a cordless impact wrench, worked a treat.
Got the little bastard off fairly easily:
Spot the difference:
It wasn't trouble free though. firstly it was summer:
So we had to get all ghetto:
It's the only way to do it.
One major problem though was sockets getting stuck on bolts. (it happened more than once)
This was probably the worst though; had to get a blow torch on it and use a wet towel to protect the CV joint:
Managed to get it off though so aint no thang.
It sits a lot lower now, drives a little nicer too. will be better once i've got all the tracking etc done.
Must say a BIG thank you to Jonnie for helping me out especially as it was in such nasty conditions, you're a darling.
I'll get some pics of how it sits now up soon, you'll be able to see that the front number plates been straightened too. whey!
