I have a Y reg AMK S3 and atm it has the standard rear ARB which according to the callipers is 15mm. I'm not wanting to go as high as a 19mm one as I have standard shocks and springs (dunno how old they are) and i don't want them to explode if the ARB unloads while cornering quickly, so I was thinking about upgrading to a 16mm one off a 4motion golf as I read somewhere that's an option.
I'm basically wanting to check that the 4motion golf 16mm ARB will fit onto my car?
also I take it I need to replace the drop links, brackets and bushes with ones for that bar as well?
and how does it work with the bigger brackets for the bushes? do the holes just line up or does it need some creative adapting?
or is it not worth it and should i just replace it with the standard one that's on it?
i've had a look and I think the part numbers are:
1J0 511 409 J - 16mm ARB
1J0 505 466 C - connecting link
N104 281 01 - hex bolts
N102 861 02 - link to arb nut
N010 236 6 - hex bolts mount bracket
8A0 511 439 - arb bracket
8D0 511 327 C - Rear Anti Roll Bar Bushes 16mm
does that shopping list sound about right?
so thoughts and suggestions on a postcard to ....... well me
