Thumbs up laguna rear bushes

Just changed the rear bushes on my laguna using the special tool, no mechanic but found the job to be a doddle.
Just seen rstones excellent post with pics.on the subject and did it the same way but also disconnected the two brake hoses on nearside,(cling film on master cylinder), clamped the rear spring (for safety) and removed the top bolt from the shocker, not sure if i had to but made the sub-frame move around easier.
Just a note, used axle stands to support the car and used the trolley jack to move the subframe with no problems.
Re-fitted all, (BLEED BRAKES), and now drive around looking for potholes to drive over.
p.s. sprayed wd40 carefully around the bushes, came out a treat.
Currently in richie rich's garage:
2002 laguna 1.8 16v
