Yeah I plan to fit then after exam season is over. I have brand new front struts and springs that I'll probably fit while I've got the car in bits too. With all brand new rear suspension fitted recently it should be rattle free and ride like a dream.

Wouldn't mind lowering it a bit to be honest.

My car is a 1.4 so I have discs all round however I replaced the pads yesterday as I have uneven wear on my rear right. Need to track down whats causing it, thought it might be the binding issue however on a rolling road brake tester it showed no abnormal results.

The front shocks don't need changing on my car although I have them from when I bought all 4 and while its all off I might as well change them.

So I've done the rear drums though I may need to bleed one side as some fluid leaked trying to remove the hubs,, typically the bleed nipple is stuck so new wheel cylinder now, my front shockers have rusted through to the point of leaking oil
