Stripped and cleaned both front brake caliper lifted the front 2 inch with torsion bar, lifted rear with new shocks and springs. Removed the rear bumper reinforcement cross member so I can attempt to try and repair/fabricate one during the week. Still got top/bottom ball joints to do during the week when they arrive.

Is this the Duck that's getting the overall Matt?
Do you do the socket on an extension bar and quick kick on the key to loosen it?

I didn't want to do that, so I got my big impact gun out, 1600nm of torc will undo or break it

And yes it is the duck, I've even started on the body work.. will be needing a few bits, and a post will go up
