Well Happy uprated drop links, any ideas?

hi everyone,

i am going to be uprating all the suspension bushes soon and as the rollbar bushes are in not the greatest condition i wanted to know if anyone has uprated there front roll bar drop links/ tie links (what ever you want to call them). As i cant find a powerflex replacement.
any ideas are welcome.

thanks sean,

Generally the OE droplinks (as well as the ARB itself) work well on the TS. Indeed this is one of the few aspects of the suspension on the 916 TS Alfas that actually works well Another plus with ARB's on the TS is that it's a better set-up than on the V6 models.

I would suggest replace both ARB and droplinks with OE. Does pay to keep them lubricated (some favour lithium grease), this tends to keep them clean and keeps away the dreaded dirt/salt that afflicts our roads.

When replacing droplinks don't tighten up the rubbers too much - if you do so the rubbers will wear out more quickly and will start knocking.

Hope that helps.
