Was going to do the brake conversion today but recived some work related news that made me think having that much on the credit card was NOT a good idea, so have returned the 305mm gta setup. Will look at this again in the future
But I still needed to do the upper wishbones (poly bushed) so headed off to my parents (I don’t have a drive!)
Up on stands and took the wheels off, the discs looked fine from the front side but the rear side OMG
Off to get new disc’s & pads (Well luckly my dad was there so he went…..)
Removed and replaced the upper wishbone on the drivers side, this only took about 45 mins
Swapped the disc’s & pads then checked the caliper was free enough, all okay so far
Removed and replaced the upper wishbone on the passenger side, this came off fine but noticed the ARB drop was shot so off my (rather hacked off by then
) dad goes to get 2 of them (thought I might as well do both!)
Swapped the disc’s & pads and then did both the Drop links which was a bit of a pig, and strangely enough a lot harder than the upper wishbones considering it was only two nuts per side!
Put everything back together and off for a test drive.
Everything is so much sharper now, having never driven her without goosed front suspension I had no idea how poor it was.
