Help Rear subframe change, questions!


I was about to change my swing arms and springpan arms when I saw that the rear mount to the swingarm was cracked! So I ordered a second-hand subframe and is about to change the whole thing...

I would love for someone to write me a short "how to", that would help me alot!

I also wondering if there is any place I can bay a new bolt, the one that goes trough the springpan arm to the swing arm (the longest one) mine was bent and almost impossible to skrew the nut back on!

Two things I also wonder: do you need to mount the bolts with a special amount of torq?
And how do I do with the caliper and brake hoses so the brakefluid wont be on my hole garage floor?

Its a GTV 2.0ts 98.

Im sorry for my bad english im from sweden

Dannnee, i have those long bolts lying in my garage. If you pay the postage they are yours!

PS: Hang your calipers with a bit of string or cable tie, or rest on a bucket turned upside down.
