No idea, but I'd email sales@brickwerks.co.uk, and he'll tell you pretty quickly.

Michael is your man. Been in contact via email most of last week with no bother.
Your ARB is 21mm. Surely not sensible to attempt using 23mm?

Why not it’s an uprated ARB, I’m fitting it anyway as I have ordered it now.

Ok so an update from Brickwerks is that this can be fitted to the double bolt clamp early ARB’s, you just need to have the power flex ARB 23mm early bush fitting which is Part Number PFF85-1005-23. So they are going to send out ARB with the early bush on this one for me, and have asked to report back as they haven’t done this yet.

OK so have fitted the uprated ARB, with the Early Powerflex 23mm Bushes which they sent me. And have to say went on with great ease with the Droplinks now just used on and held in place with a nut and washer which is specific to Brickwerks, I went for a test drive and the roll is more stiffer and stays flat when cornering instead of the old ARB making the van lean heavily. Also as i have spoke to Michael at sales and told him that it went on fine and was ok they have now updated their website to include the early version for sale. Pic shown fitted to my van.

When you order this kit, you get the ARB, Powerflex bushes, and Drop Link upper bushes all at 23mm for the ARB. :ok
