    Default are upgraded arb bushes worth it

    Been looking at some powerflex front and rear arb, are they worth it for the money or should I just leave the standard ones on? Also what is the best make to go for

    Apart from springs and shock absorbers, you could fit reinforced Meyle droplinks and maybe replace some other bushings that could have got worn. Now if you're in an expense mood, there are several ARB models of different thicknesses, and also different thicknesses direction rods... ^^

    B4 are equivalent to the Sachs SRi shocks (which is not bad either, but not really uprated from OEM). For a sports ride, you'd rather fit B6 (or B8, but they'll be really hard).
