Pipes leading to rear hubs

Post by Darkangelv2 » Sat May 23, 2020 10:50 pm

I’ve been renovating the rear suspension the last few days including a new Whiteline ARB.

I need to adjust it to prevent the end of it rubbing against the types of pipes shown below (red arrows).

But what are they and what do they do?

(Apologies this is from a later BMW but the pipes look the same)

I'm guessing you mean the handbrake cables?
