    Let us know how you get on with the drop link eye bushes? Replacing ARB bushes is next on my list, but I can't find 22mm powerflex eye bushes anywhere either

    Damn those wheels look nice. Would love a set of my own
  6. wishbone/arb advice

    Cheers guys, did manage to get them done. undoing the ARB and shifting it out of the way seemed to be the key to making it a lot easier! Still, not the most fun thing I have ever done, but happily the car feels more solid now!
  7. wishbone/arb advice

    Thought about maybe trying to open the gap slightly, probably a mm or 2 would do it. Gonna try and take the drop link off the ARB aswell to make it easier to slot it in level without it in the way. Ran out of daylight today so I'll have a go in the morning 🙄
  8. wishbone/arb advice

    Doing this now and for the life of me I can't get the polybushed wishbones to fit back in the gaps. Any one got any tips??
  9. NEW Shoes > BBS RC321

    Pretty much the reason why I gave them a miss aswell. Will just keep holding out for a decent set popping up!

    there's a set on ebay at the minute. Not in great condition, mind. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-bbs-rc321s-16x7-5j-4x100-alloy-wheels/202086533300?hash=item2f0d4bc8b4:g:SPwAAOSw12hZ5PYK
  11. Lupo Gti - Janspeed or Custom exhaust?

    Yeah I managed to get lucky and get mine off a guy on a facebook lupo page. Only cost me £140!
  12. Lupo Gti - Janspeed or Custom exhaust?

    I have a Janspeed and I love it. Not too loud for driving around normally, but gives a lovely growl when you floor it! The fact it was twin pipe was the main reason I got one aswell!
  13. wishbone/arb advice

    That video was actually awesome, I'll give you that! See what you mean about the bushes now, hmm. So is there anything to be careful of while doing this or is it all fairly straight forward? Learnt how to do a lot of stuff since owning the car, changed suspension/brake disks, pads and that kind of thing, so I'd like to think I'm reasonably handy now. Just don't want to massively bodge something up and I can't find any sort of guide really on doing it.
  14. wishbone/arb advice

    Oh sorry yeah I meant the rear bushes on the wishbone, Not the rear beam! Hmm, so it's probably best to try and measure the bar end then to see what I'm looking at more accurately?
  15. At my last service the car got an advisory that the rear bushes were on the way out, looking at the wishbone's aswell they are pretty horrendous so I decided I'd just replace the whole thing and do the ball joints at the same time and try stiffen up the ARB. (already changed track rods about 6 months ago) I managed to pick a set of wishbones up that already have powerflex bushes fitted, and I have ordered all new bolts for fitting. Was just after a bit of advice for when I set about removing the old one's and fitting the new one's. Any helpful tips, things to be careful of or like an ideal order to remove everything? Second part is polybushing the ARB. I know the GTI bar is 22mm but I can't for the life of me find powerflex drop link bushes that are 22mm? Are the end's narrower or do they just not do them?? And I assume its best to just get new drop links and fit the bushes to them? The steering is pretty vague and the wheel can be wobbled a bit with barely any steering action going on which is why I decided to give everything a freshen up. After 16 years it all looks pretty grim. Think that covers everything. Apologies if it is slightly rambling
