    I'm getting my coil overs and ARBs fitted today - The mechanic has asked if I had any shorter ant roll bar links.

    I wasn't sure - Have I missed a part???

    I'm having Stance+ Ultra coil overs and H&R ARBs fitted...

    If you are lowering the van I thought you would have need some longer drop links not shorter?

    I bought Meile drop-links for the same setup - which I believe are the same length - and the fitter raised no issue.

    In reality most people don't change the drop links , The reason the fitter asked is probably because many cheap coil overs in other vehicle types have top link mounting point lowered to allow the threaded body adjustment . . they normally supply shorter link arms in the kit in these instances >

    On a transporter however the lowering will mean that to get the A R B sitting parallel to the road as it should the link arms would need to be longer .
    The A R B is at its most effective when parallel to the ground the greater the angle to the road the less effective the bars are .
