Fitted 24mm rear ARB and solid rear drop links today, rear of the car feels lot better.
Shame the font drop links would not fit, call to CDF Racing to be made.

That's a hefty bar! I have a 22mm Whiteline bar and it's recommended that anything stiffer can require billet roll bar mounts. The existing mounts have been known to fail with 24mm bars.
Also, be wary of lift-off oversteer.

Had a serious blast on the way home on the lanes and back end is lot more planted.
Was originally thinking of 22 bar and from the research found the 24 to be the option I would need for the further upgrades later on, see how it goes.
Will keep eye on the mounts,cheers and the lift off over steer.

My front drop links wouldn't fit either as the bushes were too wide as I have steel rather than alloy lower arms. I rang cdf and they sent me narrower bushes to suit.

From the research done, kept standard ARB on the front, if plan to track the car then to upgrade it to 22 bar
