Some of you will have seen a thread from me earlier this week regarding damper rebuild. Well I received my exchange dampers from Dave at Scuderia Sales and Spares on Friday, and did the swap yesterday. Guide on my site in case anyone else finds the need to do it some time!

I wasn't sure whether the damper was at full extension with the suspension unloaded, so compressed it first to make sure it didn't spring apart when I loosened the bottom bolt. Will know for next time :thumbsup:
