    Ive just brought the front and rear, just got to wait or them to turn up now.
    then I will get them fitted at the same time of doing my track rods and arms.

    To fit the front you need to drop the sub frame as I understand it.
    For the rear theres quite a few fitting guides. Total vauxhall mag had a how to on it as well. I think Courtneys web site has how too's as well.

    Well I dont know if it makes a massive difference, but the standard one on on mine is a 20mm think roll bar.
    Looking at the Vauxhall EPC it looks like most where either 18mm, 20mm or some rare 22mm versions. The whiteline front bar is 22mm, so in theory the extra thickness should reduce the flex in the bar. The rear bar is 24mm think and is adjustable so that should help tighten the back end up.

    usually you would add a rear arb to a front wheel drive car and a front arb to a rwd or both to a 4x4.

    I'm very interested in this thread, and looking forward to your opinions on the front rarb, before i fit my subframe up,

    the rear is going on regardless,

    so please keep an update,

    and also as Kev mentioned the price of the front without fitting please

    i got my front one for 90 quid on a group buy a few years ago from Revolution motorsport via this forum - wasnt meant to be this price but sum1 had fecked up the order so they honoured the price

    fittiing is a doddle, dropping subframe aint hard at all - dunno what all the hassle is about! I dropped mine complete with engine and gearbox as i was obviously rebuilding it but even without, its easy enough as long as u support the block from above.

    obviously still not yet on the road but i would expect a big difference compared to tired original one.

    Even at full price, its a mod i would highly recommend. Just for the sheer fact its got to be a good investment judging by how immense the rear ones are!
