they are screwed as you say, but bonded on with something like tiger seal where they touch the arch. im pretty sure you could trim them off and not have them bolted and the sealent would hold them on, they are quite hard to remove!

A really strong bonding agent hold the kit to the arch and a bit of voodoo.

Could you do me a massive favour and take as many pics as you can during the process. It'll help for a little project

Ah cheers yeah they defo feel well attached lol.

As far as taking pics of the process of the actual arch rolling it'll be a bit hard to do because I'm leaving it with the chaps at the shop and collecting it later in the day, and I doubt they'll be too keen to take step by step pics of the job for me, you know time is money etc etc. But I can still ask lol.

When I start to put it all together I'll defo take plenty of pics of that.

Oh and Mr Funk as you mentioned earlier in the thread about a front lower brace being essential I just came accross an Eibach one on here in parts for sale which I've just sent payment for, so that was a nice convenient find! Cheers for that advice boyo.

Mr H's one? Lovely kit.

Before you lower your car or do anything drive it hard before you fit that brace. Then fit it and drive it again.

You will not believe the difference
