    Hey fellas, so I'm after some forge adjustable tie-bars, but thought the £200+ figure was a bit too much. I've heard on here once that I can get my old arms converted into adjustable ones for cheaper. Anyone heard of such a mod? and if not do any of you have recommendations where I'd be able to get it for cheaper?

    Yeah, I've seen them a few days ago, but I'd rather modify the existing ones, or buy a new set (cheapest place possible)

    thanks for the feedback. Ok so if I give it to Jabba would I have to drive up there? and I'd rather get someone I trust to do them properly

    I think id only trust someone who has a track record in doing these arms. Wouldn`t like one to snap or fail whilst cornering hard ...... ouch !!!!!!


    dont jabber send you a set out then you swap them with yours and send them yours back ????
