  • Replacing Front Drop Links

Next weekend I'll be replacing my front drop links. I had expected the old ones to have a hole in the bolt for a hex key to hold it in place while the nut turns but the ones I have fitted don't have this and there are no flat spots either.

Does the back of the link's bolt locate into the wishbone/ARB to stop it turning? Just planning ahead so I don't get any nasty surprises like spinning bolts I'll have to grind/drill out.

Cheers

Just wire brush the thread and use wd40. Then clamp thin nose mole grips to the back very tight and undo the nut.
