    I am replacing my rear trailing arm bushes next month when i replace the suspension front and back, does any one know the dimensions of the trailing arm around the bushing for example inner and outer diameter of the arm bush casing and also the length of the bush? I need these to make the RTAB Tool in order to remove while on the car. Any help grateful.........Plus once done the tool will then be available for use by other Forum members.........

    Will do, ordered the tool from the USA last night $35. Bushes arrived today, just the B12 kit to order and the a week end in April I can start.

    After removing the spare wheel tray today and seeing the state of the Diff and Diff bush, i am now adding to my project by also removing the Diff, replacing the bush and painting, i will also at this time replace the rear roll bar and bushes, so hopefully a nice thread to come with pictures.

    I have ordered some more tools and ramps so should be in stripping mode shortly.
