Thank you Molleur,

I stumbled across two problems where tips would be mostly appreciated.

1. How to separate a top ball joint and anti roll bar links?
2. Effective and swear proof way to press new bushes?

Thank you and enjoy today's sunshine (hopefully driving)
Kuba

Hi, Today I spent few hours in my garage.
I carried more work on front suspension as well as front bit of a chassis. I've removed anti roll bar, clips, cleaned vertical links etc. Basically lots of stripping old paint, sanding down, applying rust converter, primer and paint.
Results can be seen on photos.
My diy press kit arrived but run out of time to test it/press any bushes.
All together satisfying day.
All the best Kuba

Hello,

Today I locked myself in my cave from early morning till about now (11pm)

My front suspension is done, rebuild with all new bushes, new bolts, nuts and washers. I have also decided to add new top ball joints, tie track rod ends and anti roll bar links. Plus spax shocks and uprated springs.

I managed to finished LH that I started last week and also entire RH corner.
Pictures attached to illustrate progress.
