    Trim : Life(well it was)

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Default arb upgrade

    which vectras generally have the largest size of arb as im looking at what i can do handling wise for the vec and a thicker/stiffer anti roll bar sounds like a good idea, especially on the back, might try thickest pon the back and thinnest on the front to help turn in, if it turns out to be an ok job to change a bit of experimenting may be in order

    Default

    Thickest rear is 19mm, thinnest front is 24mm.

    As for what they come on, it's not listed that way on the EPC, but assume the Higher spec/larger engined cars have the 19mm rear and the lower spec/smaller engines have the smallest front.

    Part Numbers
    Front Anti Roll Bars
    24460828 - 24MM (IDENT AH)
    24421799 - 24.2MM (IDENT AD)
    24411075 - 25.2MM (IDENT AE)

    Rear Anti Roll Bars
    13131955 - 16mm
    24457381 - 17mm
    24457382 - 18mm
    24457383 - 19mm

    trouble with changing the front anti roll bar is that you have to drop the subframe down to get at it

    wouldnt you be better just getting poly bushes and tightening it up like that

    fair enough i might just get the uprated bars so i can keep the front one handy for when i have to next drop the front frame, and im gonna put poly bushes on, a little project for the winter me thinks
