So more fasteners have arrived. I'll need to count this up but that's about £60 on bolts now. Today it's the screws that hold the top-mounts to the turret on body plus the bolts that attach the trailing-arms to the bottom of the knuckle.

 

I'm getting all these fasteners from rates Ford, on Ebay, and P&P is free but it seems an awful waste that they are sending each order separately in a big jiffy bag :rolleyes: 

 

Also got the rear pads and a couple of seal-kits for the rear calipers. My only observation about these is (as well as not being Bosch) the kits didn't used to include the seal that sits on the caliper body round the actuating-arm for the handbrake. These are now in the kids but strangely you seem to get 2 sizes

2 options for actuating-arm seal?

Hi

 

When ordering your parts from Rates did you use the Buyitnow on each item or add all to basket then proceed to Checkout?

 

Rates often turn out to give the best prices for genuine Ford items online.

I don't know if they are right yet dojj but I did start a separate thread to ask about pads before buying them....

So I've still got the old Mistral sitting forlornly outside my barn and having problems with the 2.0 - which needs to be MoT'd soon - so just to make my life more complicated I bought new rear shocks for the 1.8  :huh:

 

I think he plan was to change to shocks on the 2.0 and put the shocks from that on the 1.8 but having bought new shocks I can feel that all the old ones are knackered  :rolleyes:

 

So for £68.39 (total) I received 2 new shocks. They looks fine but no idea of the quality and never heard of the brand before
