    Good day / Bad Day

    a bit of good and bad times today.

    firstly fitted my eibach springs and whiteline arb today.

    (pics to follow tomorrow afternoon after i have rinsed the car down.)

    but also some bad news.

    noticed that my front disks are quite lipped so they need replacing which would be the ideal time to uprate them but i'm not sure if i can afford it.

    also noticed that my rear tyre has got a nail in it so that needs replacing but as i am going up in tyre size (215 instead of 205) i need two rear tyres.
    although they are both faily worn anyhow so were due for replacing in the summer but thats still another £165 on top of the £190 i still havent paid for two front tyres last week.

    finally tried to find the source of a mistrouis noise (thread in tech section) but couldn't find the cause but concluded it sounds expensive and needs sorting now.

    on top of this possible spendage my insurance, MOT and road tax are all due in the next 3 weeks.

    why does everything have to go wrong at once??

    easy mate.

    although i did have the use of a pit which makes the whole thing a lot easyier.

    as per instructions really.

    but this is how i did it.

    firstly with the car out of the garage.

    lifted rear of the car up and supported fully on axle stands.

    removeed the rear springs and shocks on both sides.

    drilled a 10mm hole through the center of the bump stop on the bottm sway arm.

    fixed the the L braket to the rear sway arms with the "back" of the L bracket closest to the center of the car.

    put springs and shocks back on wheels etc

    drove the car into the gargage over the pit and fitted the chassie brackets and then fasten the ARB to the brackets.

    the whole job took us around 4 hours but that included clearer the garage to get the car in etc and clearing away and a few tea breaks.

    i will get the pics up tomorrow.
