Right so onto the rears, these are very quick and easy to fit, again excuse the mud and dirt:

Jack up and axle stand as before:

Undo the lower shock bolt, don't slide it off yet though if not it will drop when you undo the tops.

Now undo the top bolts...

You will notice I have twin calipers so just have to cut the cable tie holding the extra brake line then lever the lower off with a bar as it will have some (not very much) force holding it. Then wiggle it out.

Something I was quite surprised by was the thickness and length of the MaXpeedingRods shock and springs, this should allow more travel (more grip possibly) whereas on the front of the car I'm fairly sure I will have less travel due to the shorter body...

Whilst the coilover was out I did a quick clean of the area, before:

That's a bit more like it

And new one slotted back in:

There we go, so I should be trying these out in exactly a month from today at a local car show, hoping to align the car again before that happens. Also have a drift day sharing a friends car next weekend so that should be fun.
