    Rich, as seen in Andy's pic, the A3 Quattro and S3 have the ARB's attach UP onto the strut via droplinks [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Due to this, the shape is different as well. Sice the FWD models attach down to the control arm, the ARB curves around and down, whereas the S3/A3Q doesn't [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Not the greatest pic, but here you can see the droplink connect to the ARB behind the front caliper:



    And here's a pic of the FWD (Golf) ARB setup from the ECS site:

    Drill,

    There is only one pic in the above post...

    So what exactly does the ARB on the quattro attach to? bottom part of the shock?

    Which pic doesn't show?? I see both [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    The Quattro ARB attaches to the droplink, which attaches about halfway up the Strut. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]
