Geo kit arrived and quickly installed the fronts. Turns out one front hub must have had a stripped bolt and has been tapped to a larger thread. So will need to probably drill out the rca to take the bigger bolt as no chance of getting a nut on the other side. Everything in the kit seems to be really nice quality and so far has gone in no worries. Will be getting the rear in over the weekend I hope.

Had all sorts of pain getting the rear in. Tried to use gear pullers and bolts etc to pull the spherical bearing out so I didnt have to take the hub out. After many snapped bolts and the bush remaining, I pulled the hubs and used a mates press. Will be putting them back in tomorrow with any luck.

Kind of a win today, kit is in. Round the block test and the left cv decided to come out of the box as it must have dislodged a little refitting the hubs. Also looked like I had just enough clearance for the wheels but once it all settled and drove the lower balljoint nut rubs the wheel. So will need a pair of 17s for the rear by the looks....

Well that's not what I wanted to hear haha. My kit is on the way and was hoping I'd be able to press the bearing out without removing hubs. Glad to hear you got it on, unfortunate about the little mishaps, time for wheel shopping!

"Clearanced" the lower rear balljoints a little and the rearend works now. After multiple disassemblies of the rear chasing a grinding noise turned out to be a front brake dustshield rubbing only on left corners. Oil pressure sender also decided to spring a leak which was fun.
But after nearly a month on and off its sorted and driving, need a proper alignment but my home alignment seems to have it driving night and day better for bump steer than before with the geo kit. With any luck might get to a short course session at lakeside next month.
