    update for me is nothing has been done on my car in ages!
    But i did go to the tip today cos i was having a clean out, driving back from the tip face and i see this VERY good condition trolley jack just sitting there! Anyway i jump out and have a look at it and it pumps okay except when you put a bit of weight on it. The pumping system is bloody simple in these jacks so i figure well it's probably just low on oil or has a burst seal in it. One of the tip guys is there and i asked about it and he told me that the guy who dropped it off told him it was only like a month old and it wasn't working anymore. I ask who i have to pay to take it and he's just like "take it! I never saw you!" LEGEND
    So anyway i get it home and start stripping it down and it turns out someone has had it apart and put one of the valves back in up side down!!! So like open when it's meant to be closed etc.
    Anyway gave it a clean and put it back together and it works like new HAHAH So yeah a good 2000KG trolley jack for nothing

    Update time...

    Rear end redesign nearing completion, components off today to be sandblasted and powdercoated, ready for final assembly!

    All i can say is that equal length 4-link = so smoothe! Just to jack up and watch the pinion angle stay as it should, definately worth the work.

    I cant be bothered waiting around for the dollar to return to something worthwhile, so for the time being i have modded my original upper arms to use the standard items (although they are nolathane bushed) until the price of the rod ends required for the rose jointed arms comes down, which will enable me to have it tuned and most importantly, washed!, sometime in the coming couple of weeks!

    thought you were after grip? not going to find more with rose joints... to solid prob find more by keeping the old bush type, or remove an upper trailing arm to let the diff move around more.. dodgy backyard grip styles yo
