Should take delivery of a whiteline rear ARB tomorrow which I will be fitting this Saturday with luck.

Fitting looks straightforward but what setting would you advise?

The Hard setting , drop links in the inner hole or softer setting, drop links in the outer most hole?

Anyone done a comparison and what do you normally leave it on ?

cheers

Yeah the hardest setting on the whiteline is equivalent to the softest setting on the profile one. This is what most people have them set at.

One other thing.

Should I put some sort of grease, copperslip maybe on the bushes or leave dry ?
I've also got silicone grease as well.
cheers

Fitted the Rear ARB this morning, very straight forward only 20 mins to complete, gave all the bolts and drop links a nice spray with wd40 before releasing too.
Put plenty of silicon grease on the bushes as well.
Feels much more 'planted' on the rear now, much more confidence around the corners, havn't really give it a good go yet though.
Definately a worthwhile mod.

Was going to take a photo but I left my phone at home -DOH!

She also had a nice oil/filter change with castrol edge too !!


Big thanks to Troy45 for selling me the nice black sprayed ARB, cheers bud.


Only down side was it looks like I'm gonna need new pads all round and front discs very soon, will also carry out a brake fluid change as well, can see 5.1 going in.
