Re: Saint who?

Re: Rear suspension work

Yes, can highly recommend monobrace, it adds a lot of stability at the back, very happy with it. I've als just fitted rear ARB from an XKR this evening too so now pretty much have an LWB sport now :lol: Had to swap one lower shock bush too, when I fitted the shocks right side had a tiny tear in the ...

Re: CPS
