    Thumbs up ARB bushes fitted

    Big thanks to John robertson (top bloke) for giving me a hand today. Bushes were a right sod to put in. Couldn't help but take a pics of the cars together.

    Mine could do with a wash

    Take it to a garage lol

    Better to have a second jack to jack the suspension up into place as there is ALOT if tension in the ARB

    Also helps if you've someone there to work the jack for you

    yeah. get a pinch bar (a big one) and watch where you are levering. There is a brake pipe limiting access on the driverside and a loom placed stupidly on the passenger side. Why vauxhall never put two bolts on the carrier amazes me, instead its a stupid hinge type jobbie. Oh yeah and have patience my friend lol

    Need to tackle this myself, reckon it's a garage job? :O I heard it's time consuming and that like. I have two jacks, but i'm a bit sheepish getting underneath the car, especially in this weather!

    If the knocking ain't too bad wait until the weather is a bit better mate, nothing worse than crawling around in salty water

    It's only that ****** annoying creaking noise when I go over speed bumps at the front end! Heard it's time consuming, so last resort would be at the garage!
