    Changing front ARB Bushes

    Noticed today whilst fitting my 312mm discs that the front ARB's look like they need replacing. Theres a big gap between the bar and the bush.

    It looks easy to replace. Just one nut by the looks of it. Is this correct?

    If you struggle to get the collar over the new bush, use some mole grips / water pump pliers to close the gap a bit more. Or you could get a slightly longer bolt and use that to close the gap before putting the proper bolt back in...

    If you are only changing the bush's just make sure that the plastic lug / spacer isn't split or brocken as you will then need a new bar.
