    Annual Irish Rotary get together 2017

    Hi guys please put my name down too @Panda @Rex Ruthor static for me unfortunately, that might change when I know more
  9. Hi All so I though I was being good in changing my own spring in the rear suspension. I got far enough, the old spring is out, that all went well. The problem is putting the shock together, in an online video once the bump stop and rubber bushing is placed on the top of the shock there is some threads popping through the top so when you put the shock and spring back in the car there is some thred popping up to bolt it to the shock mount. On my shock (oem) 2004 Rx8 once the bump stop and rubber bushing is on there is no thread coming through so I can't get it back in the car. I'm also baffled as the where the space sleeve has gone, it just vanished. Anyway looking online at other examples I've seen some videos of guys having to compress the rubber bushings before putting the spring back. Anyway if anyone has any suggestions or can point me in the direction of a new sleeve please let me know as the car is on stands until I can get this back on.
  10. I'll be using this video and the PDF well handy
  11. Hi the rears would be good for me if their still going? really shocks and springs is all I need I can canobolise the older ones? Brilliant
