More parts now on order, rear drop links, rear Powerflex ARB bushes. So the rear can get some attention. Hopefully, the mounts are not as rusty as the fronts.

I'd say a good place to be lol.

As Dave already knows, secondhand rear ARB bought (cheers Dave) So that a nights work next week, just hoping I can get the mounts off with no fuss, and the couplings are not as rust as the fronts were.

Started to review the rear situation, thanks to help from the forum as always.



Rear arb bushes and supports off, and though the supports could be improved with some elbow grease, I have ordered some replacements. The drop links have not arrived yet, and need to get the exhaust off without snapping the flanges first.

I don't think the exhaust flanges on the M Coupe are as fragile as the ones fitted to later cars like the E46 M3 so hopefully you should be ok

Fingers crossed, I bought some new hex sockets, so should get a good grip on the nuts.
