i think the jigs vauxhall use have pegs which go into sub frame and others which go in to the under side of body which can be adjusted so on refit they end up in same place.

Cheers Dave! I'd put a sub frame back on my Astra a while ago, but did wonder if there was a certain way of doing it. I've seen some places using a jig for alignment, but what gets me is the jig is on wheels they roll away once the engine is out.

for re aligning i just measure and make sure its on center left to right and parallel to rear axle.

Just out of interest (and sorry to hijack the thread), how would you realign the sub-frame?
Are there particular points for it to line up with?

it looks pretty solid. but i wont know until i can get proper access i suppose

Depends if that the end of it or its thinner all over the cavity.

Not sure there are bushes on there if you are re-using what is on the car. If they're not on the MOT advisory then they're either unchecked or OK.

My mums car was in for its MOT and has failed on a corroded subframe (unrepairable) This was not even an advisory last year and only driven for less than 1500 miles.
