Strangely enough for me, I gave it a quick wash, as it was dusty after sitting outside the workshop all day.

Disks and pads all round and O/S drop link was knocking, good mornings work and a bit save.

Bought a new torque wrench for the job

Just need to investigate why my N/S rear marker isn't working and do the front to rear brake pipes.

Sorted.....
