Recently replaced the front "spring assisters", the one on that side of car was completely fubar, another possible cause

Dodged the showers to fit this today, along with a new spring and a rear drop link.

Hi Robert.
I see you have used a Freelander 1 engine cover, and done away with our whole engine cover, just a little heads up you have now exposed the the EGR bypass which any decent MOT tester could or should spot and if so its a fail on the MOT.

How the Freelander 1 engine cover looks in situ, with the EGR exposed.

Duct taped the rear window in place, as it decided to drop tonight when my son dropped the car round to park up on the drive after getting a puncture earlier this evening...

Yes I know. That's why I still have the full cover to go on when the MOT comes round next May

Hi Andy. Is that one of the latest arms from DMGRS.?
I have a set of the previous arms from them,and they seem ok. The bracket for the drop link is in the correct place. Not like the ones from India that were in circulation. Mine are in the loft for when I need them. Got to spray them with Waxoyle before use tho.

Itís one from Rimmer Brothers, not sure if itís new stock or not but the drain holes are in the correct place and all the welds pass the weetabix box test!

So I finally got the two rear suspension arms replaced on the MG ZT and I have taken the 75 off the road, as I need to look at the rear springs as the rear is way to low. I can only get one finger between the tyre and the wheel arch.

I have to say the difference in ride...The 75 is so comfortable and the ZT has a lot harder ride.
