    Default Anyone changed their front ARB bushes?

    I have got my replacements from ebay and they look like the ones in the How2s, but looking at what is fitted to the car...those look completely different...has anyone else done this job and had a similar issue? Will these fit? Front ARB bushes here

    They look about right, but don't buy them - for that price, even less in fact, you can get genuine Vx ones from Vauxhall.

    If you have any doubt as to which ones you have the serial no,s can be read off inside the wheel arch , the part no is at the top of the arb bush and will either end in 1231 or 1232

    Thanks for the replies all, I've already got the bushes unfortunately so I'll have a look at them tomorrow when I'm fitting the new rear calipers. (292s)

    you need to make sure they fit your anti roll bar ?. because vaux told me they fitted 2 different size ones and the only way to find out the right size is by the part number on the ole ones or measure the dia of the bar ?

    I did mine the other day. Those look fine, but as above you need to check that you need 25mm ones. I got my 24mm off ebay, but i have a 1.8 so I was fairly sure I needed the smaller kind.
    Thats a fairly steep price for one, I got 2 for 6 quid which was comparable to vauxhall. I should of gone to dealers but i was in an ebay frenzy! Since you've bought em already it doesn't matter. You can have a look and see when you take a wheel off. The 24mm ones have two raised dots on them.(the rear bushes actually have size written on them).
    Make sure you have a 10mm flexi head ratchet, an e12 torx socket and I found a magnetic pick up tool very useful for positioning front bolt back in.
