    ARB Drop link nuts

    I'm getting ready to replace front and rear ARB drop links on my 2006 Golf 1.6 FSI.

    The nuts supplied with the drop links I've received from Autodoc all seem to be slightly oval. Is this part of the self locking or are they just duff?

    Yes, they are self locking.

    Thanks for response. I knew they were supposed to be self locking. I just wasn't sure about the "how" of that and didn't want to damage the new links before I started.

    I'll crack on with the job now.
