    Wow rear wishbone bushes

    The camber looks much better. Not sure if this is already accepted as fact but the 3 bolts on the wishbone to balljoint are definitely camber adjustment. There's way too much movement for it not to be. I shoved mine all the way back when locking up.

    Every time I work on cars I swear I'm never doing it again.

    @Rich gave me some motivation to ignore my finger hanging half off and give it another go. After loads of perseverance with a c clamp managed to stop it spinning. Now just need 1 of those nuts. Cheers all.

    I've tried loads of things to put pressure on it from above but the nyloc nut is just too stiff.

    And if anyone could answer quick I'd appreciate it. There's a thin metal plate wedged in the caliper piston. Is that part of the old brake pads or does it stay with the car? I've lost one. 🙁

    The threaded bit of the track rod end is just turning anyway so looks like a new one, then might as well do both. Starline or lemforder? GTi isn't specific is it?

    Front wishbone, rear bushes.

    Great help guys thanks. Helped me get the next one off a lot easier. Has anyone got any idea where I can get a 19mm track end nut? I had to hacksaw one off when the spindle kept turning. I've got loads but not the correct pitch which is quite fine on this one. Left is a good one, right is one that doesn't fit.

    Doing the discs, pads, ball joints and thought I'd put some polyflex rear wishbone bushes on. Crazy job. Those old bushes take some ****ting to get out. Then the new ones are a pain to get in.

    Lupo GTI Ball Joint

    Resurrecting this. I may as well swap my ball joints, one seems to be knocking a bit. There seems to be loads of places to buy this part now, is this right. Or is it still the stealers only? Any particular decent make or place to get them?

    Morning all. The mechanic said that once he managed to get the tie rod nuts undone he was able to track it fine. Said it's all OK now. Got some new tyres on and it feels much better. These were the tyres that came off 😮

    Sounds like the ball joint thing might be a goer TBH.

    Thanks I'll mention it to him. Something I could do myself but it's at the garage now.
