Rear ARB bushes and rear ARB links
« on: 11 November 2017, 21:00:11 »

Fitted some new rear shocks today (KYBs). There is a real improvement just replacing these. It's definitely tighter and smoother at the rear. But I'm aiming to do a full suspension overhaul as per another thread.

Anyways money constraints leaves me just doing a little bit each month.

Has anyone had any issues with the rear ARB setup I.e. The links or bushes? If so what sort of symptoms did you get?

And has anyone got a link to these items at reasonable cost? I see on eBay there are some dirt cheap options but I wonder about heir longevity.

To my knowledge, they rarely, if ever give any trouble.

That's what I thought tbh mate. Certainly nothing picked up on the mot.

But I do like putting nice shiny parts on 😂

My MV6 covered over 232k in its 19yr life, and never had to touch front or rear ARB bushes.  Spend your well earned where its going to make a difference ;)
