Understand what you're saying but you'll get easier access when the subframe's out.Well… now I’m definitely blaming you… lol.
I’ll assess it when I get a chance to get under it, I just feel like some of it I might as well do now if it’s apart, but if the shocks are okay I may just replace the top mounts and etc. But there’s a definite knock at times which I’m sure is cv joints. So they’ll defo be getting done.
Are your shockers 'CUP' dampers? Previous owner said they were on mine. They weren't of course. He wasn't misleading me, he was told that by the guy he bought it off. Hard to tell when they're all rusted up, unless you have a brand new set to compare with. These cars are so old now, we've no idea what bits have been stuck on them over the years. I've learned the hard way. The RB project was a reflection of some of the mistakes i've made on my other 2 cars.
