Can someone help with my nuts?!



Having toruble finding a spanner/tool that can get to my suspension top nuts whilst leaving room for an alen key in the dampner rod.

Anyone changed their own suspension or know of a solution. Need to get under there to change my top mount and bearing for MOT (due bout 1 month ago!).

Thanks for any help!

A spanner with the complete circle on the end that bends, you know the one i mean lol

Cant remember the name of it
 
think I know what you mean,

we do em @ halfrauds in the ratchet range, might "borrow" one from the shelf to see if it works before buying it. lol

Any other suggestions?

mole grips, cost me a fiver for some small ones.

or get a recess spanner from halfords, just make sure you get the right size.
 
Hmmmm.... mole grips?!

Have been looking for a swan neck or deep offset spanner.

The Fuds dosent do them, neither does Allwoods or Toolsure or part co.....

Am pullin my hair out, mechanic recons they want goin on 100 squid to do it, not even an hours work!

Howcan they sleep at night?!

Theyre worse than chavs and dentists and police and old people...... well maybee not old people. lol

I fitted my coilovers with them as i couldnt drive to halfords and I had the wrong size swan neck, so had to go to local shop.

Yep 21mm swan neck or if you get a 21mm socket, put the alan key down the middle to hold the piston and then either use mole grips on the socket or an adjustable spanner if possible.

get an impact wrench!!!! I got a cheapy one for £10 and it did the trick perfectly. I went for that instead of the 21mm swan neck spanner because I just couldn't get a 21mm swan neck spanner anywhere. Saves a lot of hassle as well as it only takes seconds with an impact wrench.

Finding the same trouble finding spanner. Everyone does 20mm and 22mm but not 21 :mad:.

Where you find an impact wrench for a tenner?!

Might go out in a mo with the old mole grips. :D

Cheers for all the help guys.

my local halfords didn't have any when I was looking for one and I got mine from Makro. I've only used it the once but at least I now have it incase I need it again.
