Just been trying to fit rear uprights to wishbones. There is a discrepancy of over 1/4 inch at the top. I have tried swapping wishbones etc and still the same. Any sugestions please.

they sometimes need a little bit of "gentle" persuasion to get them into position

Hi Ali,

Thanks, I tried a little bit of that but to no avail. Taken everything off and will have a rethink.

Have you tried connecting wishbone to upright first then wishbone to chassis second? It was a pain to get mine in

I have now got the upright into position and I believe I had the wishbones the wrong way round. I think I misunderstood the information regarding the notches.
Still quite tight but they are in. Problem I have now is with the Gaz shocks, the rubber bushes are protruding so much that I cannot get washers in.

I have the same problem (I posted about it here: http://www.gbsownersclub.co.uk.....ion/#p2710). Flipping the wishbones made no difference, as I believe they are symmetrical and the notches are vestigial from an earlier version. I'm hoping once the car is on the ground with some weight on the suspension everything will look a bit more square.
