This was spread over a number of days as it was done between work and off days. On the hoist Sunday pm, Started Monday, worked Tuesday finished all jobs Wednesday.
A goodly couple of hours were spent Monday making a tool to push the mounts back in Pics later. Using this only took about ten minutes to set up and screw the mounts in using a couple of drops of detergent in 500 mils of water for lubrication.
The mounts have external grooves which correspond to a couple of (almost) unseen dimples in the housing
The car now does not clunk and does not self steer on rough bits of road (of which there are plenty down here)
Next job is front control arms (next week)
