1 Dropping the subframe on 23rd May 2015, 1:51 pm


I've managed to get those four bastard bolts off, suspensions off, anti roll ball is off, brake line and sensors disconnected.

What's the jib with the prop shaft and diff?
When I start to drop the frame can I pop it out and leave everything attached to the subframe?

Put a tipex mark across one corner of the prop to diff drive flange so that it goes back in the same place, diconnect the prop and leave it in the car, you can leave the diff bolted into the subframe and remove it as one unit mate, also it helps as you can put the trolley jack under the diff and lower it down, just be careful it doesn't tip off of it buddy

Super Very Happy no tipex but I have a finger and white paint.
I'll loosen the arms to hub bolts before offing the rest as I'll be getting the frame cleaned up and powder coated. Finally happy to have some nice weather to carry out the crappy jobs.

She's off. Flange seal was tight but was recommended hammer + wd40 which worked treats. Now to strip it Smile

How come you dropped the rear subframe ???

Needed bushes and boot floor required tidying due to surface rust, thought I'd get it blasted and painted while I had it off.
Along with that, now doing brake lines, fuel filler neck and fuel lines while I can get to it.

It wasn't that bad, big 1m breaker bar and impact wrench made everything easier.

It's only going back on loosely, I'm doing as much as possible to reduce costs then off to body shop where I'll drop it again for them to do what they need with nothing in the way.

I've got pics so I'll post it soon enough.
