    I have been wondering this myself. I hope those springs didn't give you anymore trouble.

    Bloody work! I haven't been able to post for ages because I've been working to about 7 o'clock every night this week.

    All I can tell you about the suspension thus far is from physically compressing the FLH side. Much stiffer. It hasn't been driven since I finished that corner (the only corner I've completed so far) so I'm yet to see the difference in static ride height.

    I honestly haven't had time to do it. We just put in a bid for $40M contract at work, so as you can probably envisage it's kept me occupied for the last few weeks with preparation etc. Fingers crossed it'll be at least half done this weekend.

    Thanks Bowie. I appreciate your sympathies immensely. I've also been feeling very sorry for myself for having to spend so much time at work.

    The RH front has proven to be equally difficult, because the nut on the top of the strut tower is extremely stubborn. I've tried heating it to no avail (to try and 'neutralise' the nyloc), so I'm now investigating drilling it out. A crude method I know, but since it's being replaced I'm not too concerned about the old shock/nut.

    I'll keep you posted over the weekend.
    Cheers,
    Chris
