    Default Drop Links Fun

    Hi all changed front drop links today, how 2 was bang on, apart from the blow torch, angle grinder and the metal chisel i needed on the offside as the top bolt wouldnt budge, even with a 17 hammered on. all done now though.

    I did mine today too.. Replaced with the uprated Saab ones and fitted powerflex anit roll bar bushed at the same time.

    I've still got steering knocking but its so much better to drive now.

    I used a breaker bar for mine... Undid them fairly easily but they were far tighter than I expected
