HOW TO: Installing VW Polyurethane Lower Control Arm Bushings without a Press
2003 VW TDI 1.9L Diesel Lower Control Arm Bushings are Hard to line-up, but
with a bolt , some grease and some washers the small one is a breeze. The
larger bushing requires force. I used an anvel with a screw type attached
vise and an 8" block of 2x4 wood. Once again the grease was the key. For
the big bushing you will need helping hands (it is a two person job).

In this video we'll show you how to replace the control arms and bushings
in a BMW E46. This job is also similar to other cars in the 3-series
lineup, including the E36.
Anti Roll Sway Bar Drop Link Replacement Vauxhall Opel
Skip Intro 5:07
I discovered you can change these drop links without jacking up or removing
It took me about an hour as the extra time it takes undoing the nuts is
saved by not removing the wheels.
Turn the steering on full lock and you can get to the nuts while laying on
Remove the top joint first as it helps with removing the bottom one.
I found replacing the nearside easier probably because I'm right handed.
I bought a pair of droplinks off eBay for £11. But they don't look as
strong as the original Vauxhall ones. I'll see how long these last and put
the results here.
This is quite an easy job and stops that annoying knocking noise.
Although this was done on a 2008 1.7CDTi Corsa it should be the same for
most of the Vauxhall range
Nissan 350z Coilover Suspension Fitting Guide How To. (Z33) HSD DualTech.
We fitted a set of HSD DualTech Coilovers to a Z33 Nissan 350z. These are
the more affordable HSD kit at £500 available from driftworks.com. It's
one hell of a kit for the money, and the car rides superbly.
There is also an even better HSD MonoPro kit that uses Monotube dampers and
a full coilover rear strut available from Driftworks..
[How-To] 350Z Rear Camber Arm Install [SPC Ichiba]
Warning: We used the included SPC bolt for extra camber adjustment instead
of as a toe bolt, as we nearly maxed out the SPC. This same process can be
used to drill out for the toe bolt, as it will be necessary when adjusting
camber. Dremel & #115 dremel bit is another effective method of cutting.
This Z may need actual fully adjustable toe arms to correct the massive
amount of toe-in from pulling out the camber. I may do a follow up video
with toe-bolts and arms.
This Z has already been modified, you may need to remove your stock Exhaust and some shielding to access these
Also it is recommended to cut both sides of the slot if you are bringing it
to a novice alignment shop. Imagine a regular joe who can't understand why
the bolt won't fully adjust, and putting 150lbs torque on the alignment
bolt until things snap.
SPC is much better than Ichiba, however Ichiba lasted on this slammed Z for
1 year with no real issues. (Bushings looked great)
How to adjust ride height & corner balance your car - KW Suspension DDC - Technik
Setting your ride height is just the start when you switch to coilovers.
The real beauty of using KW DDC coilovers for us was in being able to lower
the car and maintain the OEM corner balance. KW and other coilovers also
let you improve the corner balance or weight distribution of your car if
your car doesn't already have a good set up from the factory.
Technik and GTChannel show you how to set up the KW Suspension DDC using
our project BMW E92 M3. We changed our wheels and tires to a square set up
and in doing so raised the front ride height. This changed the handling
characteristics. By putting on the DDC coilovers we were able to adjust the
ride height and more importantly regain the stock corner weights despite
the taller front tires.
Robert Choo lends us his expertise and garage to do the adjustments.
