    Not sure what the longer one is though maybe part '5' both are labelled as 'pipe clips'

    I would hope they're new ones not actually of your car mate as arb brackets etc are not a good thing to not be fitted, lol.

    OEM, if the suspension did squeak i doubt it would be this part..it would be the ARB bush or plastic collars perished
