haha sounds like fun! the slide hammer we're using is pretty big, about 3ft of stud with a weight on the end, ended up injuring my arm  :lol: i've been giving it a good soak all this week and will give it another go this weekend. if it doesnt come out i dont know what i'll do, as its far too low.

hi all, trying to return my 5 to it's origional ride height. took the rear shocks off and give the spline a good soak in wd40, tryed to remove the bar with a similar remove tool. didnt budge one bit, even give it a heat up (later reading i wasnt meant to), anyone got any ideas on how to get it out?

Any tips would be good

Thanks :)

hi guys, my 5 has been up on axle stands for about a year, so i forgot how low it actually was..cant get a piece of paper between the back wheel  :lol: i know the front end is easy to change, but whats the situation with the rear? does anyone have a step by step or could give me some tips on returning it back to the origional/higher ride height.
Any info would be great.

cheers guys, i havnt seen a fully smoothed 5 yet, dont really like the look of the tailgate being smoothed out, but the bumpers that i have seen smoothed look pretty smart, i might end up smoothing them as the strips are pretty expensive for what they are, + i would need new ones as mine are abit butchered!
