    Looking for a bit of help if possible. How did you get the sway bar suspension arm (boomerang shaped thing) out without dropping the tank or subframe? I can’t figure out how to get it off. Doesn’t appear to be enough room for a ratchet to get in at the inner bolt or did you just use a really long wobbly extension? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Car looks great btw. Keep it going for another 15 years.

    Hi mate
    i managed to crack it with a spanner and then used a long reach 18m spanner to hold the nut and undo the head with a flexible ratchet head spanner or if you are careful you can feed an extension with a wobbly on the end and crack it that way.

    Hopefully that makes sense! Don’t forget your penetrating oil too! Lol
