All in all a lot easier than I thought it would be to be honest. I'm not exactlty handy with mechanics but using phils info and some advice from RG225 it was done in an hour

Before:





After:





Oh and good job I did this as my rear drivers side spring was snapped!



one thing I did do just to make things easier was take one wheel off at a time and use a jack to support the beam so it didnt just drop out when the shocker pops out, also took the bump stops out :evil: they are for whimps anyway hehe



Should sit a bit better when the fronts are done, driving the car is a bit strange as the front pitches up noticibly but its off into RS tuning for the fronts doing tommorow AM will post more pics when its done

yeah took it out just quickly to check the spings werent gonna pop out but cant really draw any conclusions from it as it felt a bit strange TBH the front end was pitched up etc will reserve judgement till its all properly done!

Nice work M8. like the photo's, I would take your time until the fronts have been done as I guess the handling will be all over the place.
Looking forward to the other photos and a full report of the new found handling.
