Hi again

Parts arrived less than 14 hours after I ordered/paid for them which was amazing.
Went to replace the bearing first and discovered that the bearing was infact completely fine, no slop in it at all!! Turns out the play is coming from one of the suspension bushes.
Lesson learnt.. dont always take a Warrant of Fitness employees judgement as correct!!
I am now hoping the parts supplier will be willing to take the bearing back/ swap it for some bushes! The new bearing didn't go anywhere near the car so hopefully I will be in luck.

Tie rod was very simple to change as expected.

And another thing, i was wondering how complicated it is to adjust the camber on the front wheels of the W114? Due to the suspension being lowered considerably their is a fair amount of negitive camber and I was wondering if it was reasonably simple to adjust.

Any help would be great
