    Adam don't try and undo the pinchbolts.
    just take off the 2 inner top arms at the shock end as it's 10x easier.

    No worries mate, as you can imagine I wanted to get home and fit my headlining trim anyway haha. Also I was pretty shattered from the journey so it probably wouldn't have been the best time to do it mate.

    I'm on 6-2's all week so I'm free every evening except tomorrow if you want to pop over.
