turned into a rush trying to get wheel bearing sorted couple hours before departure on the jimny but all sorted in time.

next big job was to get the virtual lift sorted to make room for tyres and flex from the yj's

yea for sure! with the yj kit moving the front axle so far forward i think the front VL needs moving further forward.

also been busy doing wheel bearings,swivel seals, axle oil seals and kingpins on jimny, need to do the rear wheel bearings at some point too.

the vit has proved troublesome but will hopefully be sorted soon.

in the meantime i've been rocking a volvo v40 the likes to lose indicator light units at random, has a gaping great hole in the exhaust and now has a sticky calliper...

oh the joys of cars!
