Quick question for those who have fitted Sportlines do you or have you used two new axle bolts read someware that its a must to get new ones is this true and is there a correct torque setting for these.

I sudgest you skip the hassle and use spring clamps. This way you dont need to remove the axle bolts at all. I did mine this way.

the rears are a piece of p1ss and can be done in around 20 mins a side, fronts are a bit of a pain if i remember rightly, gaining access to strut top etc isnt the best, im sure its obvious the way they fit mate... you will manage fine.

no worries, yea was pretty simple really, me and a mate did mine as its loads easier than on your own.
hardest part is to release the strut from the hub but we got a hammer on the job lol.
You will need a spline set aswell mate, looks like a torx bit but has 12 teeth.
just remove your wipers and the plastics around that to get access to top mounts

Rears are really easy, just remove the pin on bottom arm and pop the new spring in, did both sides in 10mins on mine

Hope this helps
