ARB bushes swap - jack needed ?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

i plan on changing the arb bushes as I’m sure there is a clunk sometimes so thought I’d start with them. 
I have access to an inspection put so my question is does the car need to be jacked up at all to change these?

does it have any effect on the arb or the compression of the bushes if it’s not jacked up?

also anyone know the torque settings for the bushing holders ?

You can do it with the car sat on ramps or with a pit. No need to remove wheels.

Fairly straightforward depending on how your front undertray comes off.

Worth checking hvac unit drain hose and other drain hoses/holes for blockages whilst the front undertray is off.

Remember to lube up your new bushes well if using Poweflex.
