GTA ARB Question

Just got myself a set of GTA ARBs for my V6. I have noticed that they do not have the bushes on them. Can i use the old ones ? if not where would be the best place to get new ones?

Also will i notice much difference? I am putting FSDs and ebachs in at the same time so i definitely will notice a difference but i was wondering if the GTA ARBs are a significant improvement over the standard V6 ones. My car is a lusso so the suspension is like a burst couch at the moment.

well, yeah, and maybe new drop links to refresh the whole front ARB set up... not a big deal... 20 quid for the PU ARB bushes, and about another 20-25 for the droplinks.

I think i am going to chip away at the front set up over the next month or two. Just pick up a bit a week . I would like to get the whole lot done together to get that transformed handling feeling.

The list so far is :

Wishbones upper / lower
ARB Bushes
Droplinks
Springs

Anything else you can think of? (please say no)

new dampners (aka shock absorbers)... esp if u are going to bother with new springs... not necessary... but dampners are a wear item ...

cost of two new front ones, not too bad...
