Had a productive day today between rain showers.
Fitted brand new ford front shockers.
New and old:

New drop links to front along with new pinch bolts and ball joint bolts..glad i did with this one:

Fitted new cv boot cos the 6 month old one i fitted before had split.

All clean and painted:

Also fitted new bearing to aux belt idler wheel..engine a lot quieter now..amazing what a difference it made.

New shockers are a vast improvement..went for a test drive and was actually looking for potholes to drive over..no more crashing and clattering:D

On the down side the wishbones are nashed, and a ball joint too.. noticeably worse since i lowered the car 6 months ago.

Just need to sort out my zorst now..job for tomorrow that... its hitting the body and making a right racket now thanks to a speedbump:incazzato:

Nice job mate. CV boot split after 6 months??

Yep..it was one or those universal ones that you trim down to size..really thin piece of rubbish really. New one is a lot better thick stuff..well the second one was..the first i was given was the wrong one..too big:
