A very simple and straight forward procedure. No need to remove the drive shaft- but be careful not to tug then out of the gear box or you will lose your gear oil.

Shop around for the parts, there is a vast range of price being asked. Budget on £30 each.

Ensure they are actually fitted with the rubber bush and the lower swivel joint.

just make sure you disconnect the drop link before removing the bolts from the arb bush on the control arm if one wheel is still on the ground else youll need a a big g clamp to get the bush frame back down. Its a very simple job also be careful how far you move the hub because the half shaft comes out easy.
