997.1 suspension refresh

This was the difficult one, I kept it and put it on the garage wall to remind me of the pain that I went through
The front crossmember is pretty straightforward to remove, and makes cutting the inner coffin arm bolts far easier.
The issue being that “once you’re in there” you end up doing the coolant crossover pipes, the plastic coolant manifolds and steel brake pipes at the same time.

Removing the rear crossmember is an altogether different can of worms and can bring its own problems.
I think I’d rather remove the rear damper/spring unit, the driveshaft, anti roll bar and upright/hub assembly along with the suspension arms that aren’t seized, and then tackle the remaining seized arms/bolts/bushes with the crossmember in situ.
