    There are no ARB brackets on my hybrid chassis. My prime intended purpose for the Marlin is trials, so since I want to keep both rear wheels firmly on the ground as far as possible I feel a lack of ARB is acceptable because the front suspension will articulate more easily with no ARB.

    But, what about normal road use, Will it likely wallow, like a sow pig's belly, every time it sees a corner?

    If I am to have an ARB, then the time is fast approaching when I need to fit the brackets.

    So, ARB or not, what say you?

    The hybrid does away with the anti roll bar as it uses the live rear axle and the chassis/track is 2 inches wider than the donor Triumph so it wouldnt fit without modification.(thats why there is or should be an extension on the nearside track rod) I think you will find the front a bit stiff any way the softest regular Triumph spring would be for a Spitfire MK1 2 or 3.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!
