Doesn't the new Eibach roll-bar kit come with new drop-links? :p

All the best

Don't over judge the fsd's and eibachs until you have fitted the anti roll bar kit! Good luck with the fitting.:thumbs:

Finished the back pair about half four. It's alot lower now but I'm cursing not getting the anti roll bar. Both drop links were seized so I had to drill out the bolts to release the nuts. Ones held on with a screw and the other is held in place wit 2 Jubilee clips!!!! I wont be going far until thats sorted!

All in all I'm happy with my days work though.

Fronts tomorrow then I'll upload some piccies.

My dad even decided to copper grease right through the living room carpet too just for good measure. He's hiding in the conservatory now dreading the return of his wife.

Just had a look online. The cheapest I can find the Eibach anti roll bar kit for is £276. This is for the front and rear bar and all bushes. They dont come with droplinks and these are £20 for front and back so looking at another £300 for the lot.

No it was getting dark by the time I finished and i was pretty grumpy. I'm going out dead early in the morning so I'll do it before I come back in for breakfast. I assume your talking about the 10mm allen bold that clamps the shock fork?
