Default 409 and later front suspension

Thank you both for your answers. I had a very helpful telephone conversation with Nick of SLJ who stated their method is to cut the tube and re-weld on completion, I suspect time is a factor here. He also advised on re-assembly to raise the wheel to its normal position before doing the final tighten of all the bushes. Use trolley jack to remove spring but replace using 2 x 10 inch 3/8inch threaded bolts/studs to tension spring. Not sure why trolley jack cant be used again but will see. Replacement of lower ball joints can be a b.gg.r but the modified 2inch AF socket is necessary. I am COVID positive at present so proceedings on hold.
