    Before anyone shouts at me I don't have a vernier gauge or digital calipers so can't measure for myself :)

    I'm going to order some ARB bushes but I see there's a couple of sizes. On my '99 5dr Sport will I have a 21mm ARB? I assume the 23mm is S3?

    21mm up front usually on an agu.
    S3 is 19 but attaches in a different way so sizes are not comparable.

    Cheers Prawn, what would the 23mm one be for? Quattro?

    Are the Powerflex ones ok? I'm still getting a very minor but nonetheless annoying clunk when pulling away (which I originally thought was my exhaust) so going to poly bush the ARB, drop links, dogbone and topmounts (might use LCR) and hopefully that will sort it once and for all

    I ordered 19mm's for my front ARB on my S3 and they did not fit, received my 20mm's today.
