Dax's FD return to the road after 6 years sorned
« on: April 01, 2016, 09:55:25 PM »
Hello people, I guess I should have started this one earlier since its now MOT'ED but never mind lol.

So it passed its MOT on Wednesday but I still have jobs to do to make her spot on and I also want to slowly get it modded up.

So firstly I need so help on rear bushes, I have play in both of these I have circled
 

I can't work out which one of these it is, if so somebody could help me out as I would love to replace with a full set but funds won't allow at the Moment.

Wow leds h4s look good.
Both your worn bushes are the pillowball type not available in polybush form as rosejoint type.
The top 1 are what i had to replace on mine...

Due to there nature of the design there quite expensive. Circa £60 each. I got my 2 from Clive at MRP. You need 4 ! Like i said Clive had to order them in so i found a pair of used top wishbones on ebay which i have not used ...there back on ebay! Lower track control arm again PBs again ebay 2nd hand or Clive...in my build is a couple of photos showing how you change them.

It will only save you from buying the top 2....there on ebay £80. With best offer...i only paid £50.00 so thats what id let em go for. Also i got the yellow stuff pads cost me £66. But theyve bern in carrier ill let them go for £50.00..as well...there a track pad with fair amount of dust...after 5 years off road you really need to be changing front n rear pads...mine had loads of meat but on removal friction material fell off back plate !
Let me know what you want...the bushes on the wishbones are all good.
