    Yup, the rear ARB has stubby little drop links, about 3-4" long.

    I would think the dealer can tell from your reg. or suspension type (sport, standard, etc).

    If not, the size is printed on the outside end of the ARB's - you should be able to see it if you rub the dirt off and shine a torch on it. I have an Elite with standard suspension and my rear ARB bushes are 17 MM.

    Finding the correct size first was a preventative measure against being given the wrong ones by the dealer and only finding out when the car was in bits.

    I have a rattle and have already replaced the rear shocks and ARB link bars, so I'm assuming it must be these bushes so thery're next on the list.
