How do I replace bottom wishbones on my 156
I know there is lots of info on this site about wishbones but can anyone give me a step by step guide to replacing the bottom wishbones on my 156? I have somehow managed to get the old arm off (o/s, will do n/s later) but can i get the new one in? no way!!! To get it off I split the bottom ball joint, remove the the bottom strut bolt, undid the 4 mounting bolts and by wriggling everything it eventually came out.
To get the new one in I've tried to reverse the process but no good. Do I need to remove the big driveshaft nut so I can pull the hub completely out of the way? Remove the strut? Put the ball joint into the hub first. Can anyone give me a 'noddy' guide to doing it
