    this is probably going to be an easy one but how are you supposed to tighten up the nuts on these bolts?
    i just cant get enough access without having to turn the propshaft to get enough movement with a spanner!!

    With the ARB removed it’s a bit easier.

    Having removed my prop shaft many many times I’ve got used to it now and use a standard angled 12mm ring spanner and one that I’ve straightened a little. Some use a medium strength lock tight when reinstalling but I just check and retighten regularly as they do come loose.
