    Default Vectra C Preface Z22SE Drop Links and ARB Bushes

    Evening,

    Hoping to replace the existing parts with better quality parts as they have lasted around 6 months.

    Seen the uprated drop links posted on ebay
    (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Saab-9-3SS...0#ht_914wt_952)
    and thought i might try them.
    Can anyone confirm these are the correct part number for Vec c Preface z22se.

    Also the arb bushes, is there any easy way to identify which ones i need for the front, i know its either 24.2 or 25.2. I thought one has little bobble's on one side? expect to be wrong though. I dont know if it matters or changes things, but I have gone from standard shocks/springs to 30mm drop.

    All the drop links are the same mate so you'll be fine with them.

    You'll have to read the part number on the side of the existing ARB bush to identify it.

    These are the ones the dealer gave me for my prefacelift 2.2 SRi.



    Although there have been posts in the past where the same cars have had different ones fitted to each other. Think VX must just raid the parts bin when they made the Vec c.

    my car is not an sri its an elegance 2.2.

    I have had a friend measure the bar from the visible part when steering in full lock and he says its the 25.2. I thought this one was mainly on the sri's and lowered standard cars.

    I think you'd struggle to get an accurate measurement of the ARB itself, because the difference between the two sizes is only 1mm, and also because the diameter of the bar will vary where it's worn or near a bend. If you've gone to the trouble of taking the wheel off to measure the ARB, instead shine a torch onto the bush and read the part number on the side of it.

    i have not removed the wheel, just put it in full lock.

    It was also measured with a proper caliper tool.

    We jacked the car up and tried to check the arb number, but it is on the inner side. We tried with a mirror but couldn't get all the numbers. so didnt bother

    Easier still, phone a dealer with your reg no. and ask for the part no.
