    Which tie bar to change

    I'm changing all my suspension items at the weekend, and i have got the KW adjustable tie arms. I had a quick look under the car yesterday and noticed there were 2 bars on each side. Or am I looking at the wrong part?? Anyway, asuming i'm looking at the right part, Which one do i change??
    Any help or advice is appriciated.
    Thanks, Mark

    Bottom ones mate, the KW's have a section of steel plate to bolt the Xenon light leveller too.

    Here are some pics I took when I did mine last weekend:

    Make sure you undo the leveller arm mechanism before you undo the tie bar though as you are likely to break off the plastic leveller arm.

    Thanks for the replys guys. Pics are good 2 tuffy, cheers. I'll be sure to undo that then as i'm guessing they wont be cheap to replace.
    Thanks again
