    Default Changed the rear suspension arms yesterday

    The drivers side was a fairly straight-forward job...took about 45 mins.
    But the passenger side was a right royal tw@t!!!!
    Everything was going ok till i had to remove the inner bolt....took me over an hour and every combination of my socket set to get access and remove it.
    The exhaust and spare wheel well were the problem.
    Started at about 10am...finished at about 3pm

    Anyway, job done now....front & back discs & pads to do next

    Well done mate. Sounds like you had a cracking day!

    I remember when I did mine some months ago on ex-C, I spend more or less the identical time doing it, did the ARB's too.

    And quite right mate, the passenger side was an absolute pain in the anus!!

    Hope it did the trick anyway!


    Bye bye Vec B
