Just completed my refurbishment of the rear suspension on my car, and have a lot of donor parts which became available after I removed them. And a spare wiper arm with the magic plastic hose clip!
2 x rear dog leg arms
(cleaned, painted up and with good bushes)
2 x upper wishbones
(needs bushes taking out, repainting and new bushes)
1 x near side pan arm
requiring repair for the adventurous! Bushes are fine by the way
2 x hand brake cable holders
(cleaned, painted and ready for fitment)
1 x near side wiper arm
with wiper, clip and spray rail (great condition)
Notes on re-building suspension:
ABC Enamelling from Nailsea did all of the powder coating for £25 for upper and lower arms and 1 pan arm. Koni Str.t shock absorbers have been a great change, not too harsh. And I was genuinely amazed to see that the centre of my pan arm had come away with the spring. But while I wasn't intending to do the upper wishbones, the bushes were so cracked and I was pleased to get them changed over. And while this was going on, the car had new underseal applied all over, as after 14 years it had started to look a bit tired, luckily with only minimal corrosion. The above parts have come off a well looked after 3.0 GTV with 78k miles, and it goes to show that no car is immune from rot/perished bushes....
And a special mention to spankdanny for supplying me with with all of the spare parts to be able to do the powder coating! Top man!
