It's always fun getting stuff in the post isn't it

But before you go fitting all the new bushes it's probably worth mentioning the compression rod; basically where it fits to the framerail is actually a pivot point and there have been quite a few reports of the compression arm snapping because the poly bushes are too rigid. Which is why I think most people tend to use the stock rubber bushes or ball joints for it rather than uprated poly ones.

Okay, wicked, thankyou very much morbias, I will take that into account once I start replacing the bushes either this week or probably next week.

I know exactly what you mean.

I will update post when I come round to doing it.

Appreciate the advice.

Thankyou.

No worries, better safe than sorry with that kind of thing.

I think it's generally accepted that you can use a poly for the front and rubber for the rear without causing too much stress to the rod, sort of a best of both worlds as the poly front reduces deflection and the rubber rear allows it to move around.

There's also a plastic ball joint kit you can use with the stock compression rods that replaces the front bushes made by a company called G-something, can't remember the exact name now though!

[EDIT] The company's called G-Machine

Sweet!

Thankyou very much!

I will definitely considder what you have said using both the rubber and polyurethane on either end of the rods.

.

Also I just purchased a brand new set of KYB STRUTS, and 35mm lowering springs.



Did not cost too much....

And yes they lower 35mm for the 2+2 model!

I made sure they were for the 2+2 as I know the strut towers were made slightly longer so I have been informed by mjp.


On that note my new MJP front bumper should be arriving this week!!

You have banjo fittings on your clutch pipe, are you sure it will fit your car?

So when does the serious work start ie bodywork?

Thanks for the link.

Yes I wanted it with banjo's for ease of removal in future .etc...

Banjo's soo much better!

Also, they will fit as if the thread is too long a couple of threads can be taken off.

But they should be exact fit as explained by the guy who made it for me.

Haha.

Very nice thankyou.

Dont know how to use the whole forum yet.

I should imagine it is simple to look someone up like any other forum.

Will get onto sending him a pm later this evening when I am home.

Spent 3 days at the mrs place, so I got no work done on the zed this week so far!!!
