    Revel in the subversion.

    All an arb does is (in part) add strength (you no longer need), unsprung weight (I expect you wouldn't like) & add effective spring rate (when it now can just be achieved through a change of springs should you even need it).

    I'd prefer to limit roll with a roll bar rather than increase spring rate. It'll keep the rear end safer on the straights, and a roll bar is a lot more tunable at track side for wet days - none, standard, 22mm and 25mm are all available and changed with 4 bolts.

    You'd be better off replacing the bushings for spherical bearings

    I've finished the toe-linked beam, fitted it and tested it. It was eventful, that's for sure.

    So I needed a roll bar on the new beam, so I fabricated some mounts out of 25mm box section with captive nuts to facilitate the fitting of a mk2 Astra GTE secondary ARB:





    Fits nice and snug:



    Handbrake guides also re-attached as my Corsa C rear discs use this:



    Old one removed, new one fitted:



    All fitted:
