So i'm pretty much bouncing off my driveshaft with the ARB.

I've heard shorter droplinks are one solution, and that an under-shaft ARB would be a better solution.

How low can i go on shortened droplinks?

Alternatives? R32 arb is no good without the mounts on my JOMs

My understanding was that the Whiteline was best as it went under, meaning no-more-issues-evar.

And aparently closer is better due to some twisted logic in the way the arm works (it pulls it closer, but the loop at the top then sits in a different place).

Tim you can look at mine next time im at Ollys. i have chopped droplinks. and Chris. no afraid not, the shorter droplinks bring the bar above the bar with a bigger gap. completely solved my issue.

i havn't yet seen any droplinks that come shorter as standard. all the companies that make them seem to think they need to be longer...... very odd.

i had my standard metal one cut down and rewelded, worked a treat. but they sit a t quite an angle and it now looks like i may need to change on of the rubber bush type parts(or just get some new metal ones and chop them down again. not sure how much they are as i dont think the 1.6 comes with the metal ones, but it will be fairly cheap.

put it this way, the adjustable droplinks that are for sale are £50.... and they arent right for this application.

on that not i have a set of FK adjustable droplinks here, never used... anyone want them? [:p]
