    Only one I could find


    Bought that a few weeks ago. Rear axles are easy to remove. You can either remove the 3 bolts on each side or the pivot pin that runs through the centre of the bush.

    AFAIK the hatch and estate are the same. Dampers may have a different rating on the estate as will the springs but the beam should be the same.

    Average price for a beam would be anywhere between £50-150 depending on condition and whether it was disc brakes or drums. That one was pricey as it was a 4 stud rear disc setup with ABS and there aren't that many about. A 5 stud disc setup would be about £100 in good condition I reckon.

    Ricky what exactly are you planning? If your after a 4 stud rear beam with discs I know where I can lay my hands on some. I was advertising beams with discs/calipers and ABS along with a new handbrake cable for £190. Was looking to get 3 buyers to keep costs down but it also depends on your location as these things are heavy.

    You don't need the whole beam BTW, just the hubs if your planning a conversion.

    im plaining on getting a car from an insurance comp thats had the rear wheel nocked, so the beam needs sorting.

    was doing it on the cheap as the milliage is high on the car but looks in good nick apart from the rear wheels etc

    4 or 5 stud. Disc or drum? I can maybe keep a look out for you. Also the beam is the same on both versions so if I do sell the 4 stud hubs and not the beam you could buy that cheap and use the existing hubs off your insurance car.
