Well it was only the other week I was advising a guy on here to be very care full when he tries to get the pinch bolts out of the front suspension legs as they like to break off.
So today I attempted to take my front eibach springs off seeing as I have already done the rears and in stead of taking all the ancillaries off and dropping the strut I thought I would just get the damper and spring out to save on time and the weight of the unit when swapping springs over.
It was all in vain how ever. the bolt started moving then snap! so I have had to remove all the usual stuff now to be able to get some where to drill the f--king thing out. caliper off, abs sensor disconnected, steering arm, wishbone ball joint, anti roll bar link. and as you can imagine both wishbone and steering arm balls were seized and spinning the balls in the cup. more wasted time getting the nuts off. but I did and sat here thinking... why did I bother
car now removed from ebay while this is done.
