    Got my first Civic at the weekend, its an EG ESi. Its got 89k on the clock, rust around arches and just needs some TLC really.

    Got it back about 4pm on Sunday, the interior had been stripped so decided to put all this back in, took about 45 mins. Thought i'd leave it at that for now till I got a bit more time.

    Got back from Work Monay and decided to check out the rear supsspension as I was told this is what it failed on, on its MOT. Off-side looked ok, so left it, near-side, the shock was wobbling at the bottem, decided to try and strip it down but alot of the bots are seized. I've unbolted the LCA, the shock from the top and also the arm, all i've got to do now is disconnect the bake line & handbrake cable, once I've done this tonight i'm gonna get the setup in the shed, strip it down, replace all bushes, LCA's and shocks will be replaced with coily's :Smile: (when funds arrive)

    Will put some pics up hopefully later on tonight.
