Guest
Im ordering one of these in the next few weeks and just want to know if they can be fitted with the car on axel stands or do i need to get it on a proper ramp?
Also i know they are meant to be a pain to fit so how long should i give myself to fit it?

You can do it on axle stands. The difficult bit is the elbow. Could take you an hour or three depending on how much of a biatch it is. Take some advice and use copper nuts on the elbow. The won't work loose :)

Come to think of it i've got loads of studs and nuts off the diesel x-trail and primera turbo's and the nuts weld on when they get hot so i can try them first :rolleyes:

Guest, the type of nuts you're on about are called "k-nuts".... (don't ask me why, i don't know!).

They can be got in the UK too! :)
