    Kinda a 'urgh, why am I trying to do this'


    Just annoted that I overslept after being unable to sleep as was planning on lowering my car from 8/9am this morning, was woken up at 10 by some mates who'd decided they wanted to come see me which amused me no end...didn't get round to getting everything ready till about 12ish, been out there for about an hour now, All i've managed to do is raise and lower the car and move it forwards or backwards and get pissed off at my useless fucking excuse of a driveway meaning my car has to be in a certain place before I can jack it up THEN I can't get both front wheels in the air at the same time (driveway being a fucking gay) so i've thrown in the towel and might just say fuck it till tomorrow when i'm more awake. or given enough time food and tea, later on.


    Just annoying when you have a definate plan but are too tired/not thinking straight enough to carry it out properly...

    FUCK! Well...car's up in the air now, both front wheels are off (had to jack up the control arms to get them up high enough to jack and stick a bit of wood in the cabin to hold the brake pedal down XD) but yeh, both front bolts on the lower bit of the wishbone bit are seized. MAte of mine popped over to see how i was doing and has just gone off to see if his other friend will bring over the impact gun or something, so at least I can get the leg out and sort out the front springs tonight. Fingers crossed the back won't be so bad. But getting mega pissed off now as I've spent a good hour an a half trying to loosen some bolts with some spanners and lug nut adapters and a hammer (don't ask)

    I had a similar problem lol, i removed the front suspension and found out i needed new top mount as the old ones were rusty. Now i need to lower the back but cannot for the life of me get the bottom bolt out what-so ever! gonna try with a breaker bar soon lol
     
  13. 1964 Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Definately man, the breaker bar, we were jumping up and down on it for ages, eventually after about half an hour we tried a spanner and that free'd it up enough to undo the bolt :Grin: Also have a go with an air gun if you know someone with one, just like loosen with a spanner (or try to) and then go at it with air gun, rinse, repeat until you get progress :Grin: Check my build up for how the rear's go tomorrow :Grin:

    Last time this happened to me I took the whole trailing arm/hub off,its much easier to do it on a bench with a small grinder lol.
