    Surely you do not need to remove the drive shaft?

    cheers warren , yeah thanks for your comment on fb mate , im doing them in work on my dinner hours so can always get a helping hand if i need it , thats why i thought it would be better to do it in work as ive got air tools in work to make my life a hell of alot easyer , when i was doing the backs i did them both in an hour one side took 40 mins the other 20 mins as i knew what to take off with the proper tools etc.. air tools dont half make it easyer to take off tight bolts that havent been off in a while , hopefully will make an easyer job on the fronts too cant wait to get them done now

    I did remove the drive shafts from the gearbox on the Ibiza to allow the whole hub to swing so that I could drop out the original suspension. Sometimes it does help

    How is it possible to adjust the front camber as the shocks go into the hub and lock in, older cars use a two bolt method so that one bolt is cambered and allows the hub to swing in and out.

    I know from past experiance of coilovers on these cars will increase the camber the lower you go and usually ends up scrubbing the inside of the tyres!

    I didn't. But you need coil spring compressors that are around 15-20 mm shorter than the norm. I had issues getting the coils off on the normal spring compressor. Got one that was 20 mm shorter and it worked a treat
