Cheers , will deffinatly put anti-seize on the threads off tie-rods, and lock-tight on radius arm bolts/nuts. Just wondering the best way to remove radius arms, One at a time, put diff on stands, wheels off??, Chassis on stands aswell??? Spose the main thing is that the diff dont move when there out??

I'd do one at the time, it is a PITA if diff turns, wheels off to have a space and support chassis to be safe, if keeping on wheels than just use chassis stands to get the weight off a bit.

We always do one side at a time when we do ours and only jack stand under the chassis, undo the draglink on one side so you can remove the radius arms much easier. When it's time to put that side back in you can then use the tyre on the ground to roll the diff either way to line up the bolt holes on your diff, you may also need to use the jack to twist the diff depending on how bad your old bushes are? I hope this helps
