    I have loads of pro tools, a full set of the female torx bits and some male not sure what size all the male ones are. I think you can buy the right size male for around 4 or 5 quid each from halfrauds I might already have one though. I remember buying a large one for my sump plug cant remember what size it was. Yeah Ive had a quick look at the how 2, it seems like a simple job.

    sounds like a plan, Ive just had a look at my torx bits I have the female's but need a 50 male as mine only goes to 45, typical! Not to worry they can be picked up from the frauds for less than a fiver iirc.
    I have not even purchased my drop links (front n rears) yet as I was going to do it when the weather breaks. But I'm up for changing yours if you fancy having a bash at it.

    Still need to get the fronts. There dead easy to fit. It's just the back ones that are a bit tricky.

    On the how 2 where you need to take it of the bar, that seems a bit tricky

    Two words.......Angle Grinder........lol

    Easy to get off once the metal is nicked with the cutting disc.
    I also have spring compressors which can work as a wheel puller
