    Hi do you think it's a good idea to change link arms also. And are front bushes same size ? Thanks Tony

    Sorry, what do you mean by link arms? Also I believe the front ARB is slightly thicker, so the bushings will be a different size.

    Link arm bushes. They are at end of antirollbar small arm with ball joint at each end that look opposite. Only other part of roll bar. That bolt onto ends of antirollbar hope this helps. I am a welder by trade so no expert just thought I will change them also

    Yes I would highly recommend changing them, I changed all 4, they turned out to be the source of my suspension creaking. Be warned you will almost definitely need to cut off the old ones, they never unthread properly.

    Is there a polyurethane bush kit out there for the accord tourer, I have always fitted these in the past (on other vehicles) as they wear far better and are self lubricating... also is there any difference in the size of the rear ARB due to the increased size/weight of the car.

    That is a good idea, although I haven't heard of one.

    I know on the tourer that the rear ARB is smaller than the front. This makes sense from a handling point of view on a front drive long car with a heavy engine.

    @nauest I answered my own question... did a quick search on ebay and found these two kits.... about twice the price though.

    Could be handy if I replace this car. Also not done the fronts yet!
