    Default Arms & ARB Bush's Changed!

    Hey Folks,

    First of all I would like to thank all those who have helpded me with the B45t4rd rear knocking sound.

    Spent all of Sunday morning with an without rain doing the Upper Control Arms and the ARB Bush's.

    Ironically, the ARB Bush's took longer than the arms, anyhow, all done.

    GUESS WHAT....NO MORE KNCOKING SOUND....... !

    WOOOHOOOO, IM A HAPPY MAN, I CAN NOW REST AND DRIVE IN PEACE!!

    THANKS GUYS A MILLION!

    HERES THE OLD ARMS AND BUSH'S.

    When I moved the bush in the arms, they seemed really flimsy and when I gripped them tight and moved them, I could feel a faint knock.

    Anyhow, what you think of theses? F0ck3r3d or OK?

    The ARB Bush's already looked new but I replaced anyway.



    .

    Cheers for the offer. But what I meant was the bush,s on the B are far more difficult to change, I have done them on the wife,s Vectra B, I don,t fancy changing them again.

    I went to Vx stealers last week to buy some bits for my car, and there was chap in fron of me saying something about his Vec-B, I though he was going to start crying.

    He said he had changed the shocks, ARB bush's, damper bush's, one of the rear arms (one on each side), and now he said I am at a loss, he couldnt get that bleeding kncoking to go away.

    I must admit, the previous Vec-B's ive had I mustve been luck because they were literally on mute, not clunk or thud out of them.

    I hope you resolve your issues quick mate.

    I have had many Vec-B's,so has my dad, so If I can assist with anything, will be happy to help.

    Best of luck.

    Get it done mate, just make sure you have the TORX, you need E18 and E20 for the arms and an e14 for the ARB. You will also need an 18 and 21mm spanner for the Arms.

    Trust me, it feels like a totally different car!
