if they are not loose or noisy don't bother
you could always clean and repack with new grease if you are keen
only changed mine when I replaced the discs

Undersealed it today...its a shame that the previous garage decided to jack the car up on its seams.....its going to need welding underneath now to repair the damage they caused

Not had a chance to take it out yet .doesnt appear to have lowered it that much so im presuming it will ride similar to before.
Ive put sensatrack on the front so it should soak up the bumps rather than bang over them.
Got kyb on the back but theres not a lot of weight over the rear

Well today ive changed the oil and greased all the new bushes and fittings, so its almost ready for its first drive of the year.
There is a problem with the brake lights as they are very intermittent when the pedal is pressed I think it may be the switch at the pedal so theres a new one on order from rockauto. ..start there and work my way back.
Mot in march so hopefully Matt wont notice !!!!

Fitted the front wonder bar today....front end all complete...the socket fell off the handle and hit me on the forehead so now ive got a huge bruise on my head...trouble with getting old is your blood gets thinner and you bruise easier.
Brake light switch to fit tomorrow, hopefully that will cure the brake issue
