So a good evening in garage on Friday got front subframe in and the passenger side wheel on but could not do drivers side as the knuckle joint did not turn up until Saturday so will finish that of this week so I can get car back on ground to start the arches but the front subframe will have to come off again to build it up with new parts

Hi,

Wouldn't bother until you've got the car built up as it will change with the weight of the engine.

Cheers  :proud:
