    I'm changing all my suspension items at the weekend, and i have got the KW adjustable tie arms. I had a quick look under the car yesterday and noticed there were 2 bars on each side. Or am I looking at the wrong part?? Anyway, asuming i'm looking at the right part, Which one do i change??
    Any help or advice is appriciated.
    Thanks, Mark

    Bottom ones mate, the KW's have a section of steel plate to bolt the Xenon light leveller too.

    Here are some pics I took when I did mine last weekend:

    Make sure you undo the leveller arm mechanism before you undo the tie bar though as you are likely to break off the plastic leveller arm.
