    Default ARB Bush size

    Hi guys, I've been looking through the search threads and can't find my answer.

    I know I would find the size I need if i jack the car up and take the wheel off etc... but haven't got the time. Has anyone fitted bushes recently to a 1.9 CDTI SRI and remember the size they went for? Will 18mm's fit as I've heard that if the standard was 19mm it could be better to go for the 18mm's if you have lowered suspension?

    Cheers

    You are correct mate. But mine is lowered even more on Eibachs. (about 15mm) So i'll give it some more support and got for a tighter fit

    I had help from a mate (because he had the tools ) it took us about 1 and half hours to do one side and hour to do the other. The bolts where a bugga to undo but it worked out in the end.
