    Bleed it but think there is a slight bit of air somewhere as the pedal pumps up a lot on the second pump but no faults now and working esp etc :)

    Well she managed 600 + miles on a round trip to Wales without a hicup :) the cruise control was awesome threw all the average speed traps

    Now I've done just over a thousand miles Init I'm going to do another oil change as not sure on its history and not a fan of engine flushs what do people recommend Qauntum 5w30 long life 3 or 5w40 platnium

    Right today I started doing some more bits to this
    *fit my new h&r lowering springs
    *set tracking
    *clean and lubricate the brakes as previous mechanic never copper slipped edges up
    *bleed brakes again as not sure if there's a tiny bit of air somewhere
    *change the oil and filter

    So stuck it on the ramp at work and dropped the oil out
    image.jpg

    So then I started fitting the springs leaving the oil to drain
    image.jpg

    So started on the backs as they they are the easiest
    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Then started on the fronts which went down hill from there
    As I'm doing the clutch very soon I chose the complety strip the front suspention so I can lubricate it etc so will come apart a lot quicker next time and I'm sort of glad I did as

    *all 6 bottom ball joint bolts just sheared straight off so got 2 new ones sat there to fit
    *its had a new n/s drive shaft recently and someone looks like they out a how tube of lock tight on the drive shaft bolt so that was a pain
    *and one of the top mount to body bolts just spun so hat to cut that off so replacement sat there ready to fit

    So was hoping to have it done today but will have to finish tomorrow morning
    I also order 2 new track rods ends just in case
    Will get some more pics tomorrow as this is how I left it

    I switched the lights off before I left

    It's a little bit lower but not really noticeable think I need 18 inch wheels to fill the holes lol
    Haven't lost the ride which I was worried about as had cheap springs on previous cars and there were awfull but these are factory feel :)

    image.jpg image.jpg

    Here are my bottom ball joints that all 3 bolts just sheared straight off,
    So I ended up with new springs all round, new bottom swivel/ball joints, new o/s/f complete top mount including bearing and new bearing in the n/s/f top mount. Which are all o.e from euro car parts

    Expensive but it can be worth it if you need to use it as you won't have to pay anyone to do diagnostics.
