    Hi guys, replacing my Wishbones, top mounts, front shocks and anti rotation links.

    Any advice as to how to get this done as quick as possibly please.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Marc.

    Plenty of penetration fluid beforehand, and a really good impact gun.

    What's the best sequence to do it in. Had a look last night and couldn't figure where to start! So went and sorted the rear discs instead!

    I like to do the peripheral stuff first.

    - Driveshaft nut whilst the brakes are still attached, so you can get someone to hold them whilst you undo.
    - Remove the caliper and tie it up out the way
    - Track rod making sure not to lose the bush (abs cable whilst you're there)
    - Drop link and anti rotation
    - I'd then remove the bottom pinch pin for the strut and give the hub assembly a knock with a rubber mallet until it starts sliding off the strut

    - then I'd address removing the wishbone (balljoint first)
