Much more likely that is is the drop links rather than a bush. If the bushes are indeed worn then it would be very odd if you had to change the bar as well but I wouldn't put anything past fiat's parts strategy.

Shows the bushes on the ARB. Would be strange if that was the case though, and a bit of a PITA

Re: anti roll bar bush

The brackets are welded together so you cant split them....

What on earth were fiat thinking! Thats the most stupid design ever. Shoot the man who designed it. Still, I bet he is popular with the parts departments.

Re: anti roll bar bush

Update, the brackets aren't welded together, the two parts are pressed together, the side that has the two nuts welded on, the inside of it has like two metal tubes that are presssed into the bottom half of bracket.

I managed to get two parts apart with chisel, lump hammer and mole grips.

Once both parts are apart, I sawed off the two tube things so they go back together. Fitted the powerflex bushes, feels a lot stiffer

Re: anti roll bar bush

i fitted this too:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/POWERFLEX-...item484563c356

think it only fits tjet and mjet gearbox mount, as the 1.2 and 1.4 8v have a diddy mount.

feels alot firmer in gear, less engine rock
