    19mm bar might clank around inside 20mm bushes.

    Maybe if your pressed for time you can buy both types and return or sell on the ones you dont use.

    Sorry to bring this back up, but to save creating another thread..

    if you don't have the tabs on the coilovers can normal a3 drop links be used but just space them? Rather than getting s3 ones?
    Just had to get my cam belt done so I wanna sort this but for as cheap as possible. :D

    Do you mean, can you run normal droplinks witht the TT rollbar?
    If so, no this doesn't work. It's not spacing that's the issue, the TT droplinks are about 3 x longer due to where they need to go.

    So it's not possible to run the drop link to the wishbone as it is rather than to the shock?
    I thought you could but it just sat slightly off? I read so much everything is always different, very confusing! lol

    Ah, I get you. Yes, this is possible but it does leave the droplinks at a pretty horrendous angle. Each to their own I guess mate, but it always seemed a bit too dodgy to me.
