  1. I would take the opportunity to do the calipers if I was doing brake fluid change. Also exercise the handbrake cable and clean off the discs both internally and externally. Oil would be another as it doesn't like being sat around not doing anything. You could purchase a brake fuild tester. They are only about a tenner. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  2. Just got these myself pal. Seem good quality. £140 delivered from brakesint. No need to return the old units either. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  3. Had a look and it's 20 quid an hour near me. Driveway with the little man is the way forward Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  4. I think it still is a thing mate but this will be a lengthy process with a few hours here and there. I can imagine there will be a few hours work in removing the old underseal and recoating. Add the subframe work on top of that it will need to be on a lift for a while. I'm also trying to achieve this on my drive so I can just pop out now and again when the kids let me Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  5. So did some digging around and bought these. Axle stands are overkill but they go up to 560mm for plenty of clearance. The 2 ton ones only went up tp 420mm. Treated myself to a decent low profile jacl too. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  6. Hi all, I am pretty much ready to remove the rear subframe of my gen 7 and am looking at purchasing a decent high trolley jack as my Halfords one only goes up to 380mm which has always been to low really. I would also like some tips on supporting the car while i prep the underside. The sills will be coming off so any tips on how to get the car at a decent working height would be appreciated.
