    R32 arb fitting guide???

    Hi,has anybody seen or found a fitting guide on here possibly with pictures of the 19mm r32 anti roll bar fitting??
    been looking for about a hour and can't find one.

    Has anybody actually done one!

    Im also wanting to buy one but can't get on classifieds yet as I haven't made 10 posts! Anybody know of one for sale?

    Thanks

    Fitting is very easy! And I'm no mechanic. As I had borth rear wheels and liners off yesterday to fit new suspension I quickly done the arb aswell. All you need to do is unbolt the the drop link to the arb from the shock on both sides of the car (obviously) then undo the brackets that hold the bushes and the bar itself. Take the brackets and bushes off to give u more room to remove. I only needed to lower the exhaust shield down a couple of inches and then the bar will slide out through the passenger side rear wheel arch, would be easiest with a helping hand to manoeuvre the bar out. Then just do the same in reverse to fit the new one!



    As you can see the original one is pretty thin!

    Cheers hoggy,doesn't sound a hard job,if anybody knows of one for sale then I'm ready to buy one. Getting a few bits done to the car this week so might as well get the arb done. Does it matter if I use standard arb bushes or you recommend the powerflex?? Any difference at all ?

    Thanks guys

    While we're on the subject,I'd best ask which r32 arb do I need?is it the first model r32 or the newer one? Or are they the same?
