Can I ask what age of mx5 yours is ? As I had same problem with mine & resulted in having to get new bolts & bushes etc, the main prob on mine 07 mk3 was getting the old items out !

No worries Shaun. Keep us posted with results.

Soak bolts for a week before with Plus Gas or something similar.
Then use a big air impact gun with a decent compressor.. remove the nuts and then just batter forward/reverse on the bolt heads with plenty of plus gas. Usually the bolt comes out but you will still need a couple of bolts and nuts for spares.. 2 sets min I would guess.

Hi Shaun,

How did you get on with Kenny Brown?

Would you recommend them for alignment/geo etc?
