    Default ARB bushes

    After being sent the wrong bushes (finding out the hard way), the new bushes were far smaller in size than the ones previously fitted. I emailed eurocar parts asking for a refund, they said they'll happily send out the correct bushes FOC (I think!). The guy emailed me back today saying "There's a choice of 24.2mm or 25.2 mm bushes on this model, Unfortunately the chassis number doesn't identify which is fitted, so you'll need to check the size on your car. It should be stamped on the bush. " I'm sure the difference in size was more than 10mm, but maybe i'm wrong. Anyway, I don't suppose anyone would know which are the correct ones? It's a 52 plate LS 2.2 petrol non direct. Cheers.

    I think there actually 3 different sizes...but yours won't be the largest size, on account of your engine and the fact it's an LS.

    Correction - there are 3 sizes of anti roll bars, but the smaller size bush fits the smallest 2 bars. You'll need the 24mm bush (what ECP have called the 24.2).

    I'm assuming the 24mm is the width of the bush? I'll just go measure which ones i've been sent to make sure i'm not getting the same ones sent back.

    You might have difficulty getting an accurate reading from the bush, given the small difference in sizes. The measurement is actually for the anti roll bar itself, and I think the bush is supposed to stretch slightly when you fit it. As you're buying from ECP and not from Vauxhall, I don't suppose they have GM part numbers - if they did I could check which ones you've been sent.

    Just checked, there's no GM part numbers on the boxes. Measured up the bushes, 40mm long 31mm wide and the hole is 16mm with the gap closed if you get what I mean. IIRC the anti roll bar was alot wider than 16mm!

    That's just it, I don't have one of the car, I couldn't take it off and just leave it without a bush, so had to put the old one back on as the new ones was the wrong size Figured someone might know off here!
