    Default Upper rear control arms...

    Poked my head under yesterday to have a look at the job before I set about it.

    Any idea what sort of time I should set aside to do it, since the bolts on the inside look like an absolute nightmare to get at.

    Yep, insides are pain, but the biggest mistake you can make is dropping the socket into the sub frame, bank on about 3hrs to do both sides

    I dropped my socket into the framwork!, but got it back with a magnet, I would recomend maybe wrapping a rag round it to cover the hole, or something like that, didn't realise there was a hole till the socket dropped off!.
