When putting the 3 torx bolts back in how do you know the bracket goes back in the same place? Aren’t the hole slotted? Done my bushes last year and I’m convinced one of my rear wheels looks further forward that the other side

Cheers mate, clear and concise. Against your advice, I've ordered some powerflex ones 'cos they are only 25 quid. 4.50 x 6 is 27 quid, so using your own calculation, it's worth it at that price with the time saved.

A really good idea renewing all the fixing bolts, the rubber bush bolts could be replaced with stainless ones, that may make it easier next time. I think this must be J-P s own Defender! Chris B.

French build must have a diff power steering pipe layout as on the wife's Japanese Built 2000 Yaris there is a pair of powersteering hardlines right above the rear bush bolt on the drivers side, only thing that I could see that *might* get access to that bolt would be a flare nut spanner but it might be too thick to get in...and I'm not disconnecting the entire powersteering pipework...pass enger side replaced, drivers side looks to be in good shape and ARB no longer moves by hand. Not ideal, but a lot of work to get access
