how did your roady go? i just went and cut the cable ties that go to the eyelets, and just put the cable the other side of the eyelets. the pressure from the stiffness of the cable holds it on the other side. i still have it cable tied to the lower trailing arms.

Don't bother, they will just tell you your new suspension needs replacing with their own gear.

When you installed all the gear did you use rubber grease on all the rubber parts?

I had a knock in my ef, i took the shocks into pedders as they were under warranty and he said a lower mounting bolt was loose. Turns out he was right, got home put them back in set the torque wrench to effing tight and now all good. Pedders I've found were pretty honest, well the one I went to anyway I'm sure there are plenty of dodgey ones, take it in for the 14 dollar check just see what they say, you don't have to buy what they suggest.
