Re: help with my suspension please

Thanks for the warning mark, I am hoping it is rear springs, but will measure and check front first, if its the front then I will be back here for step by step, fingers crossed its just rear as I'm 90% sure I can do that, anyway will be back mid week with update, thanks again you wise bunch🙏

Re: help with my suspension please

Ok, is the info in the manual as to checking the torsion, if so will make sure that's correct first, otherwise I will wait till i get replacement set of springs, thanks for the thought.

Re: help with my suspension please

If I swap left for right then I might as well swap 2/3 leafs from one side to other,it might sit more even until I get new quality ones, so other than rebush I will leave alone, thanks everyone.

Re: help with my suspension please

Ok might rebush both anyway, but will look for another set of springs as I don't like that you can see the difference above the wheels, thanks for the advice, Darren.

Re: fuel sender

Thanks guys, I have a gold speedo and that was the first thing I thought, however no luck, is removing the sender as simple as it looks and would I need a new gasket or can I use the old if good enough, thanks again.
