    Default arb bushes ans drop links

    just started doing these two jobs on the sig

    did the near side not that bad to do

    bit of play in both the anti roll bar bush and the drop link

    went to start the o/s and that when the probs started

    managed to remove the wheel nuts ( think the hulk must have put them on !!!!)
    then attempted the locking wheel nut

    OMG even tighter , then the locking wheel nut key decided to disintigrate


    so looks like its off to the stealers to get a new one !!!! deep joy !

    Had the same problem with my wheel nuts went in to vauxhall for a service, got told it needed brake pads on the rear, so decided to get them done tried to get the wheel nuts off and **** me they would not budge. Had to go to my cousins garage and get them undone. nearly stripped the lock nut so put ordinary bolts back on untill i can get a new key or set of nuts.

    I will be doing mine next few weeks so any tips much appriciated. Where did you buy your bits from? And how much did you pay? Shame your not closer could have come round and do them both at the same time.

    arb bushes i got from stealers , were about £5 for the pair

    drop links i got from ebay think they were £17 ish for the pair


    make sure you have a deep 18mm socket for top drop link nut , if it spins there are 17 mm flats on the other side of the bracket to hold it with

    take botom drop link joint off before trying arb bushes as it makes it easier

    you will need an E8 ( ithink ) socket for the arb bush clamp front bolt and i found it easiest for the back bolt if you used a 10mm ratchet spanner

    its not thatbad a job just a little fiddly but once yove done one side the secnd side should be a breeze

    HTH
