    Is that with or without cake, lol, sorry had to.

    I just re-read this thread & peed myself again, its fnny as feck.

    Anyway, new arm comes with bushes on doesnt it, I would say its just some large sockets or spanners given the size of it, any closeups as not in UK at mo so cant go check mine.

    Someone on here must have done an arm on these or other car.
