Hi I assume you removed the sway bar before you painted it. Is it just a matter of removing the 6 nuts?
Thanks

Yep, parked in the garage, flat and level. Put the nuts back on loose but didn't move the car but if you need to just do the nuts up to the right torque settings and unless you go crazy through corners you probably won't notice it's off.

Replaced my front sway bar, still need to do my back one and its end-links. Back one is harder as you have to drop the exhaust and take off a chassis brace.

Has ruined my handling for now of course because I've only done the one, oversteer city :P

Stebel Nautilus horn fitted, this thing is seriously LOUD.
The horn location looks factory imo, hard for someone to notice where its fitted haha.

Kicker sub and amp also fitted, sub is small but packs serious power. Would recommend if you're tight on boot space. I also relocated the fire extinguisher location, boot is less cluttered now.

Passed the service for 30,000 miles on my Tata Nexon, replaced the oil, and looking for a subwoofer, at least 1.5 kW. Any advice?

First service on the Galant today: fluids were all changed right before I bought it, so today was just a general look-over and seeing what needs to be done.
The tyres are roadworthy, just, so they're going to need to be replaced pretty soon, but I'll wait around til after Christmas and see what specials come up.

The wheel nuts, all of them, were massively overtightened, easily around the 150Nm range, if not more, and I needed to use my 1.5m breaker bar (that I normally only need for axle nuts or suspension bolts) to get the wheel nuts loose!

Changed the rear brake pads - hadn't been changed in a very long time, and when I went to remove the right-rear caliper, I found out why... the lower guide pin bolt head had been rounded off, and none of my sockets or spanners could get a grip on it. The other bolts were also massively overtightened already, and needed a good long breaker bar to loosen. Eventually, my partner managed to fit an impact socket on by hammering it down, and she was able to loosen it off, though the bolt head was pretty much destroyed.

All good, found a replacement pin from a Lancer at the local wreckers, and the new brake pads are in and ready to go.

Oh, and I torqued the wheel nuts properly.

From memory wheel nuts are meant to be around 90Nm, maybe 95? I keep a torque bar in my boot if I need it. Oh and a lot of the time I now carry my torque wrench :)
