I've never found them too difficult. They're held on using the same bolts as the ball-joints at the front. Not sure about the rear - can't remember. Use WD40 by spraying an hour (or more) beforehand and then again when trying to loosen... unless the ball-joints have been replaced recently and then it should be a breeze.S44BT16 said:Any bets on how hard those nuts are going to be to get undone
I have 3 classic 900's and 1 99 and none of them have a front anti-roll-bar.S44BT16 said:Remove it altogether,now that is interesting.HAs anybody tried this?
Yes... they do do something. When you go around a corner and the suspension squashes the ARB links both sides of the car together and stops your independent, double-wishbone suspension from working independently. Say it's a right-hander.. then the left front corner of the car is squashing down and the body is tilted to the left... as this is happening the front right wheel on the inside is also lifting off the ground - now does that help or not? I'd say not... and so I take my front ARB off. And like I said above.. the 99 chassis was designed and then introduced in 1969 without anti-roll-bars and continued like that right up to somehwere around 1987 when they started fitting ARB's to the classic 900's. When you see how it has been fitted to the car you can clearly see it is just a bolt-on extra which was never really meant to be there. Apparently rear ARB's are worth keeping though! Personally I'm not at that fine level of tuning just yet!davidlytle said:I dont understand why you would want t take them off. Im sure they do something.
