    Default Fitted this and this and this today!

    Fitted these today. New rear disc's and pads. New drop link's to front.

    Bought rewind tool but guess what? Did'nt fit. Cobbled this up out of a disc cutter tool.

    Was able to use rewind tool with with adapted tool. Took 2 hours to do first side. Had to go and buy a 7mm allen key for calipers. 1/2 an hour to do other side!

    Any body used one of these guns? Borrowed of my brother. Have to torque up after but works well of 12 volt.

    After test run brakes nice and quite, but still noise from front suspension. Anti roll bar bush's next. Worrying thing is that the Haynes book say's : " After dropping subframe" Is that really what you have to do?

    All in all a good day's effort, and saving ££££'s.

    Ref ur anti roll bar bushes :

    Yes officially u need to drop the sub frame... but i have seen threads on here where people have been able to slide them in without dropping the sub frame.

    I can imagine its tricky.... either way

    There is a way of doing anti rollbar bushes with out dropping subframe,Think theres a post saying to do one side at a time and only undo one bolt and loosen the other and slide the old bush out without disturbing the bracket then replace and tighten
