Front ARB issues



  Cayman S, RB 182
Hi,

I am in the process of refreshing my front end on my non cup 182.

I had a look at the front arb only to find one end has corroded/split/swollen.

Should I replace the arb like for like? Or are there any options for upgrading the arb?

Cheers,
Neil

Powerflex make polybushes for the arb,
although all they seem to have done is cause my ball joints to wear out at the rate of a set a year,
I only do 6k miles a year.

All of mine have done this as well. Not much you can do but put up with it. Only does it on the sections which have the most movement.

Do you suggest just leaving it and fitting the new bushes? Or replace oem?

thanks for all the replies

On mine I took the really flakey stuff off, leaving as much on the ends where the bushes go and then hammerited the rest.

New bushes never do any harm. The inners are a pig to change if you don't have the subframe off or dropped down a fair way. You will notice a difference when it's all done, I certainly did.
