Re: My first body lift

Glad the guide helped. It is just a guide and there's a load of different ways to do most jobs. Yes I think the trolley jacks would work but be careful balancing the body and make sure you use chocks to catch it if it slips or the jacks roll.

Re: One Car Too Far

Strangley in 'one car too far' they had an issue which they had to mend with a quirky fix in each episode (egg in leaky rad, wet twig as Ht lead etc). Im wondering whos going to cough having a pair of tights to fix the fan belt if its the same format. Ho ho.

Re: Swapping diff internals

I got the elusive Rob Storr to do mine , but have also assisted with a few waggle method fitments with Dave. Once to feel the slack you can replicate it, it handy to have a spare standard diff sitting around to to get the feel off whilst your doing it.

Re: Mounting a high lift jack

First one i didi was across roof rack side to side, similar to Kevs, next one i did was based on bike rack flange from spare wheel.

The trials and tribulations and modification of mine i detailed in a thread called Van Halegon on here , ill see if i can find it for you. Rich...
