    BF falcon diff bushes. Can I do this at home or should I shell out the cash at a mechanics?

    Really hate spending money on the nugget but I'm getting some vibrations when accelerating and turning corners while accelerating and some wierd rear end swaying at speed, it feels like a poorly loaded trailer on the back sometimes. Feels a bit unsafe.

      Gotta drop the subframe. I considered doing mine for about all of 3 second d's then just lubed up and paid some.other poor cunt.

      Cost me 1200 all up but I got the rear main seal done too.
      I think the bushes were 800 ish for super pro ones. Every bush in the cradle got done.

          Probably the spherical bushes at the outer ends of the toe control arms. They can be done at home, you need threaded rod press tools though.

          To do all the rear end properly means dropping the cradle. I wouldn't want to do it at home, it is a big enough job on the hoist.

                Most of the work with diff bushes is done out of the car. Dropping the subframe is the easy part, but probably difficult on the ground.

                My opinion, but I only ever use genuine Ford bushes. Little bit more difficult to fit but I find they last longer than poly bushes.

                  Thanks for that. I might have a crack at those myself and give it to a mechanic to do the rest. Or convince the missus its time for a new car.

                    Led bulbs in a reflector high beam ?

                    I know you get away with them in projector low beams, so considering when high beams are used there aint a worry about dazzling or glare for on coming drivers.
                    So has anyone done it or got things to say about it that i might be missing

                      I'd be concerned that the light won't be able to be aimed correctly by the reflector. I did an experiment years ago with HID in the highbeam and found them to be completely useless. Great if I wanted to blind planes directly overhead, not so good if I wanted to actually see what's in front of me.
                      LED "might" be better due to being generally closer to a halogen globe in regards to the light orientation in the globe.

                        Webber DCOE Gaskets - whats the hotness?

                        Just removed my Mikuni-Solexs off my DCOE manifold to rebuild them and found the Redline soft-mount kit i used has had the rubber split the whole way through - fairly shit given they were literally only used for one event!

                          Works fine on the Kluger and worked well on the Focus. Better high beams without the dazzle from low beams (which on the Kluger are LED anyway)

                            I did my BA rear end at home, but I have a hoist. Once the subframe is out, it's just old bushes out, slide new bushes in. New superpro throughout. Drives nice now. Wasn't overly expensive though PFs favourite parts shop.

                              Do you think it's doable without a hoist?

                              Quoted $15-1600 from my usual guy. He said to try Pedders.

                                Yep it's not so bad, particularly with poly bushes. They're much easier to fit, but I've had come backs so now only use genuine.

                                ​​​​​​​Do-able on the ground but unpleasant. Your usual guy is charging about double what we and others in the area charge.
