why is it that when you do some thing good some thing bad happens :icon_frown:


at a guess im thinking that's a lower drivers side rear control arm!!!? and whats the other thing called with the nut on that connects to the anti roll bar ?

any one have part numbers for both items or recommended upgrade parts?

thank you in advance

Gav,

Looks like your Whiteline ARB has fractured the rear lateral link drop link mounting point. Needs welding or replacing I guess...

If you weld it you will snap again, I would get the 2004 STI lateral links. They are the same as the one you broke but with a double mounting tab. They should be around the same price as the OEM FXT lateral links. The ones you found I would bet were the aluminum 05+ STI or aftermarket ones (which are much more). If you go back with new FXT lateral links you will definitely need some LLWS (like the whiteline pictured above or equivalent).

Not necessarily. Were gav's bracket has broken he has a better chance of doing a good repair and fitting the link bracket supports will add strength.
