Title: Flavia Coupe ARB rubbers
Post by: BlueKSO on 02 October, 2019, 01:55:22 PM
Iím just about to replace the front ARB/sway bar rubber mounts on my 63 Coupe, prior to itís MOT.
Iíd appreciate any comments or advice on any problems Iím likely to come up against.  The job does look fairly straight forward......and how many times have I used that phrase!

Cheers,  Peter

That was easy.  Couple of hours, which included a tea break.  Thank heaven for Fairy Liquid!

Cheers,  Peter

Hi, back in April I bought a charmingly unmolested 1970 coupť that has lived in South Africa, all its life by the look of it. It's surprisingly sound but some rubber parts including the ARB bushes reached the end of their life some whike back. May I ask where new ones can be found?
Thanks.

Hi Wrenched, did you buy your SA car in Dorset, owned by a guy in Bath, Flavia 2000 coupe 1970 in Rosso York [maroon]? I looked at it before buying an exact replica via Richard Thorne. Mine was more messed with, ran less well, was more expensive and needed re-bushing throughout. Ah well. Still I love it.
You can get ARB bushes at good price from Colin Clamp of the Lancia Flavia Consortium. You may need to join the consortium first, you get access to lots of info and newsletters etc.
