    Default Job done and happy out

    Just did my top strut bearings today. All in 3 hours. Saved myself bones of 80 euro.

    Had struts out a few days ago but for the life of me, i could not get the nuts of them, and had the right tools. Ended up going to my mechy and he said could do but talking 2 hours all in.

    So in my wisdom i took them off the car and went to local tyre place and they put the impact wrench on them and bingo. Off came the nut. I fitted the 2 new bearings and the lad put the nuts back on for me.

    only prob was this was at half 5 this evening, so ended up finishing the the dark.

    right finger took a smack while getting the bloomin drop link back in though, picked up the wrong socket and slipped. very sore..

    Anyway just thought i'd share my delight at not hearing that awful pranging sound anymore from the front springs.

    Well chuffed.
