does anybody no how much it is in a garage tho

I was quoted around £150 just to do the torsion bar.... and you know what I said ;)

Seriously, doing it yourself is such a better idea as you learn and gain confidence. It's not THAT hard at all. I did mine with my dad, took about 1-2hr to get it right, then I went and helped my mate and we did it in 45min! :D

It does help though to spray some Penetrating/WD40 spray onto the splines a good week before hand (like twice a day) as it'll make the bar come out so much easier. :) Tools you need on the day...
