    Default Front ARB bush

    Following on from my recent threads I've been out and swaped wheels front/back. still hasn't made a difference. However examined the slight click from the drop link a little bit more, tightened up the nuts a tad more (mine aswell because it was freezing!) still doing it. However the n/s arb looks to me like it is collapsing in on itself. There doesn't appear to be any play, other than the initial click with the first pull of the drop link. Do you think this may be causing the wheel judder at motorway speeds?
    The picture isn't great but it looks like the bottom part is fraying and collapsing

    I would change them anyway, mine were knocking yet looked ok.


    The pins can be a sod to remove though, I found one of those Aldi fine ratchet spanners was just the job for this task.

    I've ordered the powerflex bushes (going to do the whole car over time) and the proper spanner. The car just feels right unstable now with constant steering correction needed. Everything else is checked and is fine so this is the only thing I can think of with it collapsing slightly
