Hi guys, anybody on here at the moment that has done the coilover up grade cos i'm struggling to get the strut out of the hub, it will twist round but wont slide out? i looked round the back at the bottom of the strut and it looks as if the bottom of the strut is splayed, so my question is do you open up the clamp to that extent:eek: or keep beating it with a wooden block:eek:

Cheers, yes i have got the drop link off but i had to cut through it:eek: inspite of using great patience and plenty of wd40 eventualy the splines in the end of the bolt gave up and rounded off, they must be really soft as i had a brand new spline bit and it fitted perfectly but as i said inspite of great patience, two turns forward, two back, and so on it still let go on me so in the end had no choice but chop through the link:( so anyway back to it, wish me luckT:
