Nice update Smile

The rear OEM ARB bushes are cut across the centre of the flat section so they can be opened and closed over the ARB. I doubt that would cause any problems as the clamps are pretty tight and put quite a bit of pressure on those bits of the ARB bush.

I did assume that but as I haven't removed my old bushes yet, (which I am not looking forward to as the bolts are rusted to hell) I couldn't confirm. Most other ARB bushes are split like that, as well as my 996's so I did assume this but wanted confirmation before getting the blade out. Saw

I'm happy and amazed to report the 33 year old corroded rear ARB bolts came out without a problem, I had been under the car for a little while planning how I could get a drill in when they snapped and I couldn't really use much heat due to the proximity of fuel and brake line flexi's.

I replaced the bolts with some stainless I had knocking about and stripped it and had it all back together in around 45 minutes.

I did slice the rear of the bushes in half to get them over the ARB and almost took the top of my finger off in the process, ideally they should come already split.

That's the rear ARB done.


I also fitted the new stainless exhaust tip, it looks so much better now and still sounds grunty enough, the previous tip almost had a whistle to it which sounded naff.





Should get the front 968 ARB fitted tomorrow, hopefully.

Good job Thumb

I was surprised when mine came apart easily as well - not like the bolts on the 996... PC

I will be tackling the rear shock absorbers soon so I'm hoping they come undone as easily as the ARB...

Mucho good work there Chris. Looking forward to meeting up and spending some time hooning around the track.
Is Cunno coming?

I'm unsure if he signed up for the Mallory day or not.


I managed to swap the front ARB today, was very easy as I used stainless bolts on the front too when fitting it with poly bushes. When removing the old ARB I though it looked thicker than 21.5mm and measuring it it was 25mm which I think is an option but I have also read that some cars were fitted with better ARBs that they were supposed to, maybe just due to having them in the parts bin at the factory??

Anyway I used my original poly bushes as there was some confusion when I tried to order the fronts, all I did was drill them all out by an extra 2mm and hey presto back in they went.

I haven't had much time to drive it since but on one roundabout I noticed I didn't need as much steering input to get around it quickly, I assume it's eliminated some understeer but it was fairly neutral already.

I dropped Cunno a PM and he said he will look into it, so hopefully he`ll be coming along Thumb

I wonder if the 964 Carrera RS guy we chatted to the other night will also be coming Grin

Just to add something to this thread, I was waiting for the official pictures to come out from the Mallory Track day, mostly to see what my angle of dangle is now I have the 968 ARB's fitted compared to what it was like. I still have a little body roll but it doesn't seem as bad as before.






I also had a bit of good luck (sort of) with tyres this time, after I parked the car up after the track day I woke up on Friday to find the O/S rear as flat as a pancake, there was a large screw stuck through it, I'm just happy this was on the way home and not on the way there, as it was last year for Oulton Superstition

It was repairable so it is now fixed.
