ok well this sunday.
after getting out of pit slightly late for breakfast due to supping a few too many last night, I ventured back to my awaiting alfa to crack on and getting my suspension fitted.. (11:30)
I found some proper sized shanked bolts for the pinch bolt on the folks which i put onto the offside and done that side up and dropped it on the deck.. (with spring retainer set 1/3 of the way down its sitting quite low indeed. only just about managed to get the jack out
so then moved onto the nearside and using my knowlage from what I learnt from the offside, I was determined to split folk and strut in situ but alfa got better of me.
that dammed pinch bolt rounded with only the slightest amount of pressure. so out with the angle grinder again to cut both sides off. but i cant get enough swing with a hammer in the arch to get any decent purchase on the remaining pinch bolt to knock it out
with that I started watching formula 1 and did my usual routine of falling asleep after first pits and waking for the final 10 laps
so back out to the alfa and im beaten, I am going to have to get the whole unit out as one. and thats a big pain in the butt. liner out, cutting of old spring etc etc
please, im prob missing an easy way
bearing in mind i have not got the hub nut socket to remove shaft
... lol someone releive me of my pain
