    The reason i ask is that i am looking at buying a set of 97 coupe arb's in order to install my ta technix coilovers to my 91 325, they are complete apart from the brackets from drop links to lower arms. Do you think i will be able to bolt these straight to my bimmer? ( obviously with the addition of the link/lower arm bracketry )

    Thanks for this information, i assume these dimensions refer to the diameter of the bar itself, if so the only difference would be the internal diameter of the arb bushes? And would not affect the installation to my 91 saloon (as the arb's i am looking at come with brackets + bushes)?

    Just an update for what its worth......

    My Jamex coilovers (James do not make them, they are made by a company who then sell them to anyone who wants to slap their own name on them, including a well known brand on here) have broken, even before they saw a trackday. But after 1 trackday, and a total mileage of 150 miles since fitting, both rear units are leaking heavily and have to be replaced.

    (I am not having the same again BTW)

    That doesn't sound good, I've got a set waiting to go in!! What happened to them first (before the track day)?

    Anyone else care to share their jamex/ta technix coilies experiences? I'm a little worried now!

    Here are my bars, not bad for £9.99 + postage eh?
    I'm gonna paint them when i remove them for poly bushes, hopefully in about a months time.

    I'll put up install pics for these and my ta technics tomorrow night hopefully (and before and after stance pics etc).
