    don't see a problem used, just use new bushes and drop links.

    Their about £170ish new, im going to try and get them for £120.

    So will i need new drop links then? I thought id just need bushes, bolts and clips depending if the old ones are knackered or not.

    I'm sure I paid less than £170 for them brand new.

    I'd pay £100 tops.

    just go to dealer for bushes and clips, actually your standard clips might do as the bushes are the same OD for the S3 andR32 its just the inner thats different

    Hello I have just fitted R32 front and rear ARB's. I did purchase new clips and bolts, as sugested by a previous thread but didnt use them as the originals had extra 'bits' hanging off them.

    The new bushes fit fine in the old clips, certainly a recomened upgrade. Took about a 4-5 hours all in with a few fag breaks and cups of tea.
