Suspension bolts and other parts off to the platers for refinishing. Should be ready for collection in a week or so.

Some slight issues with the replacement SPAX dampers. Strange as the existing fronts were older Spax and fitted correctly.

Top bush was wrong size in the front top eye. Should be the same as the rear. This has now been corrected. Any dampers purchased from Simon Auto will be incorrectly bushed.

New rear dampers are shorter than originals.

Supplied platform is too small for springs.

The solution is to hammer off the old platforms and reuse so don’t throw away your old dampers!
