Is it possible to fit a rear arb to a gls shell? anybody got some pictures of a rear arb installed so i can get a picture of what i need, ive had a look in whitelines website and still abit confussed as to how the rear would fit.

Cheers Aaron

It is possible but what you need is to drill holes in the wishbones (for droplinks) and to drill a hole in the floorplan for the centre bracket (can get one off an old GTi)

Its well worth the effort as improves handling no end!

what are the drop links lke for the rear? are they the same as the front? because the rear suspention arms have got holes in them already like the front ones and the holes in the floor pan sound easy enough could do with some pictures so i can get a better idea, any chance u could get a few pics of arear arb on a swift gti for me ryan ?

Get a standard GTi rear bar with drop links and it will bot onto the rear arms no dramas you need to fabricate mounts to the boot floor or as mentioned remove GTi ones and weld/bolt in place
Like this...

i got them from merlin mosport at castle combe
i think they were about £25, but that was a few years ago
theres a metal plate the bolts screw in and you can either drill holes in the floor put the plate through from the inside or you can weld them on
