Have you ever started something and wish you'd never. Got that with trying to do my suspension. On doing the back found out that the drivers side anti roll bracket had snapped so had to fix that. now on the front had to buy a ball joint tool as couldn't do it without. everything was going well till i did the drivers side again. finished everything, went to tighten up the top bolt in the engine bay to find out that the bolt at the top of the suspension damper was loose and now it want tighten. aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh :x

my antiroll bar bracket on the n/s is snapped, did you weld yours or replace the entire "bar" ?

ive kinda started it! ive got all the parts and ive got a crane and a stand and the rocker cover has been powdercoated and ive sorted out a reducer pipe for inbetween the induction pipe and the maf, and ive dismantled the 2.0throttlebody, but that is as far as ive got at the minute, im gonna start when i get back from FITP, oh and was removing the airpulse system to make the exhaust flow better but now its kinda gone wrong lol!

i was looking at a trust electrical manifold on ebay the other day but it was up to 230quid and it hadnt met the reserve so i gave up bidding!!

Ant-roll bar bracket :| 40 quid :|

I bought one for ?2.75 from Ford. The bushes are more on top of that. I found the same bracket had snapped on my current Si as my old one, so I just replaced the whole lot.
