    Drop Links

    When you put coilovers on your car do you need to buy shortened drop links for your anti roll bar?

    as far as i know its usually only after a certain amount of lowering, after 40mm or something like that, before that i think the ball joint system of the drop link copes

    £16 im having to pay for a replacement droplink!

    When I fitted my FK coilovers I bought some Old shape Ford Focus Metal droplinks! Like the ones below

    and did they do the trick dave? i take it there a bit shorter than the astra ones does it have to be st170 or any early focus?
    just checked at my local motor factors they list 2 steel or ally? one has a smaller ball joint than the other?
