I personally think it isn't worth the bother. To fit an ARB, you need the actual ARB itself, the cross member, the clamps, the drop links, and the arms with the additional mounting bracket. ARB were fitted to later 2500's, but these models also had softer front springs, which were also longer.
I have previously fitted an ARB set up to a 1973 PI, but didn't change the original firmer front springs, and I didn't notice any benefit in its handling, although I do tend to drive my Triumphs quite sedately. If you tend to hook it around corners or use it on a track, then you may possibly feel some benefit, but otherwise, I think I'd leave on its standard set up.

I recently fitted the ARB setup to the front of my '77 TC and thought it made a big difference in reducing body roll. I also have Witor's fast road springs installed, and the whole setup is poly bushed.
