    Default ARB Drop Links - Top/Bottom Difference..?

    Collected a pair of genuine GM front anti-roll bar drop links from the stealers today; they're still in the plastic wrapping so I haven't had a thorough inspection yet, but there doesn't seem to be any difference between each end of them - is there a top and bottom, or can they be fitted either way up? The retaining nuts have different part numbers for the top than for the bottom, and two of the four nuts have a wider flange on them. Any ideas?

    Isn't it easier to see how they fit after you remove one from the car and inspect it?

    I got aftermarket ones yesterday and both ends look exactly the same. im getting them fitted tomorrow, but as Lao said, best bet is to take them off first and see if there's any difference with the ones on the car just now

    Not if the ones on the car aren't the originals, and weren't fitted by Vauxhall.

    I don't think it matters what way you mount them really. I'm sure you can sort it out after you remove the old ones.

    No problem mate, and if you need it, the torque setting for the nuts is 65Nm (48 lbft)
