roll bar bushes

Post by Stef27 »

Has anyone here ever changed the front stabilizer bar silent blocks on a 216 GTI (1991 in my case)?

I'm looking for the right ref but there are several possibilities.

I measured my stab bar at 24mm.
on rimmerbros I find 23 and 25.

I can't find any on autodoc.

on rimmerbros I found SB 24mm, but for rover 400, so I don't know if it can be adapted.

I won't hide the fact that I would like to put something other than rubber, but I don't know which other rover/honda model reference I can go for.

I found everything except these, partly at strongflex.

and another question, can front SBs be mounted at the rear and vice versa, as long as we respect the internal diameter?

My understanding is that the 200 Mk 2 & 400 Mk 1 are identical in the engine bay/front suspension, only the boot length is longer. So they should fit, Either Rimmers or Motoclan should be able to advise.

As TB says, the front end structure of the R8 200 and 400 are the same but the anti-roll bar thickness varies depending on engine size (weight). The M and T series 2 litre engines are much heavier than the aluminium K series so require thicker anti roll bars.
