    A quick snap with the new wheels, looks great and they don't poke as much as I thought they would.

    The rear struts have finally given up so it's time to replace them, got a good deal on a pair of struts but there are no replacement top mounts to be had anywhere in the country! Luckily there are some in Australia and shipping is free...

    Also, who makes poly bushes for these cars? I want to work through all the bushes eventually, starting at the rear and moving forwards. Any good brands for bushes?

    Cr3 motorsports used to have whiteline and pedders i think. There was also super pro bushings. I believe they were from Australia. There was a thread on here once before about redoing the rear trailing bushings but I cant find it yet

    Thanks guys, will have a look at the options around

    Unfortunately it seems like the off-side wheel bearing has decided to pack it in, it's squeaking away while moving and all signs point to the bearing. I don't have a press so can't do this job at home!

    It just means more money on maintenance and a more waiting for the fun stuff like bushes

    I managed to change my bearing myself with a big socket and a sledgehammer.

    Or you could remove the knuckle yourself and take it to a machine shop with your new bearing and have them press in the new one.

    That should save you quite a bit in labor cost.

    I did think about doing this, and here is a workshop next door to work that would do the press work...

    But knowing my luck with parts, something would go wrong and I'd be without a car until it's fixed and I don't fancy a 25km bike ride to work!
