Does the 4wd chassis use a different arb then?
You can get kits on most motorsport parts supplyers to make your own up
Thats where I got my rear arb mounts for my 3cyl chassis

well i was having a look last nite at the sizes of the justy bars and the size of a swift gti front one front justy bars fairly big already 25mm but the justy back one is only 16 mm however when i was looking i glanced back at the gti front one 22mm and thought hhmmm offered it up (upside down) and im fairly confident it will fit the chasis etc same with simular bends so all that would need doing is to heat the sides of it to adjust the shape to fit round drive shafts and maybe shorten it slightly but there plenty of length so im goin to try this in the next couple of days or so what do you think ??

Do it, you cant beat a free upgrade
When I put my 22 on the rear it made a masive diference
I swap between sizes on the front for summer winter, but thats just me

All done and yes dominator I'm sure I would but I got my dad to do the bending for me as has can do it better and I suggested doin more and he wasn't up for it because it took so long all in all it took around one whole working day but the upgrade will b worth how much wuld people pay

It's 22mm and we made sure we only heated it once on each part as much as poss n made sure it was heated gently and thoroughly to ensure it did split tear or kink I'm pritty sure u can heat it around 3 before it changes asking as it cools naturally
