    Took my standard one off today and was quite shocked by the quality of it , a bit of hollow section and very thin fork (1.5mm) that goes on to the hub

    am i correct in assuming these will want to be adjustable both ways from standard i.e shorter adjusting and longer adjusting? if it goes on the bottom tie bar it will want to be shorter and if replacing the top one it needs to be longer... around 40 mm of adjustment either way should be plenty..

    Dont some people have to swap between the lower and upper arm when fitting the adjustable arms, their isnt a set location is there!

    Btw the alloys look 10 times better with a clean mate lol.

    thats what i mean some/most like to fit them at the top, others fit them at the bottom , as there are 2 tie bars, so it would have to adjust both ways....

    I'm interested in these as well, adjustable tie bars would finish my suspension set up off quite nicely - keep us posted.

    Well with the price of the poly bush included tooling had to be made for it, it has gone up slightly to Ł165 but these are so strong, and will out last the car, with no rusting adjusters full stainless!

    It depends how low you are going, there is no adjustment on factory arms so tyre wear will be inevitable, if you like buying tyres then no you dont need them

    These are slightly heavier as the original ones are hollow mild steel tube, not to much in it.......
