Thanks for all the advice guys! I've got all the bits now, and am cracking on with the conversion - will be using the springs for sure :lol:

Struggled with the final removal of the trailing arm today - all apart except one of the two bolts where it pivots - can't get anything onto the nut that's tucked in behind the inner arch, argh! Will be heading to the lovely Halfords for a 24mm ring spanner tomorrow....

You could try cutting a socket to a "short" version, that works a treat on a ratchet.

I used one of these - Laser extra-long ring spanner - the extra length gave plenty of leverage and the flat shape meant it fitted in the tight spot.

Managed to get it off with a standard 24mm spanner - though I can see a shortened socket would be ideal...

Struggled with a few bits but the old open diff is finally off - fingers crossed with no big issues it'll all be back together tomorrow...

Having got it all apart to look at now, I'm slightly confused as to where the spring will go on the inner joint? If the CV's are bolted to the flanges on the diff, and held in place on the shaft with circlips then where could the spring go, and how would it move the shaft? I'm pretty sure i'm missing something here, so please put me right!
