    ARB Links

    How long do the ARB links generally last,

    I think mine are away again as i can hear a light knock now and then from the o/s and also its starting to handle a bit boat like.

    Had these replaced what was only just over a year ago, although the car has done about 25k since then.

    Just wondering if this is fairly normal on these cars or if there may be another problem (i.e the 18" wheels)- can replace them myself so not bothered about the cost.

    could also be the anti roll bar mounts, they have rubber bushes which commonly wear out. Also is the car lowered? can put more stress and wear out other front suspension parts
