Mine seem to be the new type with the metal pin moulded in. Not tried fitting yet. P.S. anyone know the std front arb size of the zx16v? Assume it will be the same as the 306gti

oh right ok. I emailed IM axles and they said it was the same as the 306gti and Xsara vts beam. Obviously not exactly the same then!

cheers. Any camber figures would be handy if anyone has any. Guess cars with different cambers must have different design of beam or can it be adjusted?

Apart from torsion bar and arb sizes, does anyone know how the rear beam on a ZX (specifically 16v) differs from a 306gti one? I understand the ZX one has zero toe.

Yep totally standard! Needs a couple of clips for the o/s sill cover though, a slight gap at the rear. Whats your 306 GT?
