    Default Drop links & ARB Bush

    I'm looking at replacing my drop links and arb bushes, wondering are these the correct ones for my car (Facelift 1.9CDTI Hatchback)

    Front drop link

    Front arb bush 25mm??

    Rear arb bush (which size there are 4 to choose from 16-19mm)??

    For the rear drop links i think genuine vx ones as i can't find uprated ones and pattern ones may not be good.

    Thanks.

    My rear arb size was 19mm on my facelift turbo, but I'm afraid I don't know what size yours are..only way to be sure is to measure?
    Drop links are correct, I'm ordering a set tomorrow, if you phone and quote vectra c you get them cheaper apparently..?

    The drop links are correct, however I had them on my car and they lasted less than 2 years before I had to replace them.
    I am the only member on here that's had issues as far as i'm aware.

    As for the ARB bushes, the only way to 100% get the correct size is to either get the part number off the ones fitted to your car and check what size they are.
    Or measure the diameter of each ARB (this will need to be quite accurate as they come in 1mm increments)

    Right i got a confirmation from that the rear arb bush are 19mm.
    Still don't know what the fronts are. Its either 24mm or 25mm. Does it matter too much if its 1mm bigger?

    Yes, the bushes hold the ARB tight. 1mm bigger it's won't hold the ARB.
