Hello, fellow TR6ers, I'm getting some squeaks coming from the nearside front suspension, on 'TRoy', my 1970 TR6pi. The upper wishbone bushes,ball joint & trunnion have all been renewed within the last year, unlike the lower w/bone bushes, which have never been done, in the 10+ years that I've owned TRoy; So I'm suspecting it's either one of those 'old car' squeaks, or it's time to do the lower w/bone bushes...?
I have 2 questions relating to this...
1) Can I access the w/ bushes by removing the shock absorber & road spring, then unbolting the w/bone brackets from the chassis, & swinging the whole lot forward, (avoiding disturbing the trunion assy), or has everything got to come apart, like it says in the Brown Bible?
2) Do I need to use (& possibly make) a spring compressor to remove the road spring, or can I use longer bolts in the spring pan, & just gradually undo them (I've always used this method on other classics I've owned: Spridget,A30/A35s & Rover P4), to decompress the spring?
As ever, your advice & suggestions, will be more than appreciated,
