Yes this is correct, there is 21mm or 22mm. As I (or renault dealer) didnt know which, I ordered both sizes. When they came through the 21mm bushes had a split bag and 1 was missing. So anyway I fitted the smaller ones (we have a ramp at work) in about 10 mins. They did infact fit but were possibly a bit small. The roll bar width seemed to be inconsistant, in places it was 21.5 in others it was 22mm and where the powdercoat had come off it as 21mm!!!!!

Anyway I left the 21's in place and had to rely on the fact that winding up the bolts on the mounts would squese them shut. So the new rubbers are snug shall we say and maywell be the rong ones but........

The sound is much improved. Its not gon completly but I can live with it now and i'm not spending 120 on the droplinks so thats it for now.
