    I have a new front ARB for my car.
    When fitting it do i need to grease or copper ease the rubbers so that it does not squeek?
    I have never fitted on my self before?

    Cheers.

    Are they ruber or polyurethane? Is poly, you need to use a silicone based grease... preferably a REALLY thick one that wont vanish in 5 minutes

    If your replacing the ARB, i would replace everything that is in easy reach whilst its out. The rubber bushes tend to go soft and will mean the ARB will move more than is necessary. Is it an aftermarket ARB or standard replacement?

    Ok. Well it actually should come with some poly bushes as the ARB will be thicker than the OE one. That being the case, it may even come with the grease too

    Cheers snoop mate....

    Will do Greg im hoping it will tighten up the front just a little more.
    Although now i have had my Front Arms replaced it seems to be tighter already...
