    Default Rear ARB Bush Size?

    Hi Guys, can anyone confirm that a 53 plate 3.2 GSI has 19mm rear anti roll bar bushes please. My local dealer says the 18mm are only for the police car version?

    think the best bet is to take off the rear wheel and have a look ...I am sure when I asked for some for mine they said there was about 3-4 different sized ones

    Thanks guys. I thought the 19mm would be correct as that is what is shown on the How 2, however that is for a 2.2 SRI - do they have the same suspension set up as the GSI?

    According to my local dealer the size depends on how much the suspension has been lowered. Apparently police vehicles have been lowered more than a standard GSI so they have 18mm and the 19mm are for non police car lowered/sports suspension!

    There are two sizes 18 and 19, the best way is to ask the dealer to order both as long as you can take the other set back...
