Trying to decifer the nomenclature of what these arms names are across bushing sites and spares replacement parts is impossible. Every different website has it own name for each arm

Iv been looking at the arms all day lol. On the car and think iv figured out what's what

Powerflex use track control arm which I think is the toe control arm, attaches to the front of the hub.

Number 4 Bush is the easy one.

Iv got a couple of bushes left from the kit from Clive, slight differences in size for 1 of the arms, the rx8 Bush is slightly larger than the mx5

Trying to install suspension arms whilst the coil overs are mounted to the hub is almost impossible. 30 mins of struggling before realising what I was doing wrong

All bushing installed in the rear now.

Iv Cross threaded one of the rear lower arms that attach the ARB so I'm hoping I can manage to get a threader on it or have to buy a new one

Car is so light, I can literally put my knee against it and it rolls forward

What risk?

 Its that one that iv stripped part of the thread, only a 1/3 of one thread

Its all OK for now anyway as car is fully back on the floor now, minus the diff and half shafts as still got to work all that out.

Think I'm going to pull the front suspension off next and clean all that up as that gives me some time for money to start coming in due to starting my limited company and haven't been paid for a month so far
