You would need to remove the ARB to replace them and if you doing that you would be better off with a whole new ARB, or better still uprate it to a GTA ARB of and eibach.

Ring EB spares and get the Superflex ones. Trust me they're much better quality than Powerflex (you really don't wanna do this job twice and i've had enough of PF bushes only lasting 6 months to never use them again). OR if it was EB spares you saw them at, they're NOT powerflex....

22mm bar on the front. And no you don't need to replace the bar. If you're feeling rich then the GTA bar is a direct replacement upgrade as already mentioned. Even richerer? Eibach.

I think the rear is 14mm? Someone else will need to confirm it i'm afraid - not done that one.....yet!

I put a set of front bushes on mine at the weekend. there was nothing at all wrong with the bar so no need to replace the whole thing (5 years old, 75,000 miles). Use the guide from as it's pretty accurate BUT as you have a fairly new diesel I'd expect your lower engine mount is the same as mine or similar (See a post I made on the ARB bushes for the detail) and not like the one in the guide....
