Groundhog Day

Spent the evening putting the new crush tubes back into the suspension and rebuilding it all.

This is the slight difference in length (rubbish photo,  sorry) - very little and maybe it wouldn't have been a problem especially since I've tightened it all up with the new tubes and it seems... er... just as tight.

I've also tried to torque up one of the bolts. I asked GBS what torque setting to use and the guy said he never torqued bolts (apart from major engine bits). I suggested 90nm (from a website he had recommended) and he said that sounded right,  so that's what I tried. Problem is,  the washer is getting squeezed into the bush without getting to that torque level. Another GBS question...
