lowered my car Saturday was a right pain as the inserts are seized into the struts. so after 3-4 hours of heating it up / soaking in WD40 and using BFI ( Brut Force and Ignorance ) it did not shift one bit. Now the bloke I bought the shocks & springs off gave me the front struts complete pitty the wheel bearings had gone so I couldn’t use them. Now as one of my front springs was snapped I had to put the lowering springs on for now I didn’t want to do this as the front bounces round like a swine and upsets the whole cars handling but its still better than standard the new top mounts and bearings on so all is sorted now :nod:
Now the rears where a arse aswell the shocker would not fit in the hole after lots of persuading it finally went it. So the rears finally got completed just need to get some wheel bearings now to start the rebuild of the struts so I can then swap everything across and get it sorted :nod: :crazy: stared at 1130am and packed up and finished at 8pm – one long day :doh:
Rather amuzing that I still have no back box on my car as it snapped off the other day. Get some funny looks but not buying one as im waiting for the race pipe to be delivered, then I can fit my remus back box aswell
Now the bloke selling the Irmi kit is being a right pain as he has bumped the price up £50 the swine. He did try to sell the kit to a friend last summer ive found out so ive offered him a bit more but not what he wants. See what happens when I go to collect it tomorrow!
get my new rims this week i hope - astra sport 8 spokes
