SE5a axle repairs - needs an overhaul ?

SE5a axle repairs - needs an overhaul ?

Its called end float as long as its not making a noise when cornering its probably ok, most make a noise when accelerating, de decelerating or all the time - never had a GTE whose axle was quiet.

Your local auto windscreen shop or similar ( I always use National Windscreens ) should be able to get you one - and fit it.

Shocks and poly bushes

Club traders but you will have to tell them the make of the shockers and the eye size as not all even of the same make had the same size bushes fitted. If replacing the complete units then I would go to the club traders again and find out which sort is offered by them - they often have more than one...

Fuel pump - new mechanical or electric?

steering rack gaiters 6a

I use universal neoprene - they came with a funnel to get over the track rod ends - you don't think they will but they do with a bit of effort. I think they are on ll four cars now but they are not cheap.
