I decided, before removing the top nuts/cutting the bushings, I would try at least loosen all the nuts/bolts first. That was when I discovered that a) the top nuts wouldn't shift without pursasion. b) the bottom nut and bolt wouldn't shift period. c) it looks like the panhard rod and radius arm bushes (I believe together they make a watts link) are pretty shot, and could do with replacing anyway. -- Carl Robson (The poster formerly known as Skodapilot) http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
