    TT's and LCR's share the same arms too IIRC should you be having difficulty finding any mate... they are cast/forged rather than pressed steel...

    Just thought id ask on hear first, see if anyone had them lieing around lol.

    Paul, do you know if the facelift arms are a lighter design to the pre-facelift ones? Also i keep reading different post about the arms been different in the bush side of matters, if i were to buy the newer arms, would i be able to use pre-facelift bushes as i hear they are better!

    Any info guys is welcome.

    The later arms had a larger (more compliant) front bush than earlier ones IIRC... I know this to be the case on TT's at least... Its not a major issue as both will fit just make sure the rear bushes are the non voided type and use powerflex in the front...
