Hello guys hope your all keeping safe. So just an update after a busy weekend my old man and I replaced both rear axle bushes and to be honest if you remove the four bolts either side holding the axl in place and drop the axle Down it was not a difficult job at all. We have now fitted poly bushes so hopefully that will never be an issue again. Also over the weekend we fitted 35mm apex lowering springs all round as well as new strut top mounts and new stabiliser arms..The hardest part of this job was relocating the strut when reinstalling it the strut always seemed to be leaning forward regardless of where you positioned the hub. We also fitted 30mm spacers all round which were bought from KODE. At the moment I've still got the standard puma wheels on but am going to be fitting St170 wheels once I've bought tyres. Overall a very successful weekend no more dreadful knocking from the worn bushes and the car handles so much better now its lowered. The wheels now also fill the arches some what with the 30mm spacers all round. I will post some photos up shortly hope everyone is staying safe. The millennium lives on!!

Always nice getting the worn rubbers replaced, it's like a revelation.
