    Question Neuspeed Front 22mm ARBs are discontinued!........suggestions for an alternative?

    Hello all,

    As the title says, the Neuspeed 22m front ARB for S3 is no longer available. I couldn't find it anywhere online and just had confirmation from Awesome GTI on the phone.

    I was just about to go ahead with the 22mm Front and 19mm rear setup from Neuspeed but alas it wasn't meant to be.

    So.....given that a Neuspeed front arb is not an option, can anyone recommend an alternative? H&R, Eibach, Whiteline........is it recommended to keep the 22mm front dimension with these other brands?? (ie assume the material stiffness will be the same).

    Regardless i would like to achieve the balance that the Neuspeed 22F and 19R setup gives

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Just dont bother changing it. 19/19 f&r is a good setup. Or if you must upgrade the front theres a 21mm OEM bar if you didnt want to go the full 23 of the R32.

    hmmmm. maybe the thing to do is to get the 19mm rear r32 bar and then see how it feels........if i am happy with that then it saves me having to drop the subframe etc for the front.

    Off an TQS? Does it fit with an S3 setup?

    Yeah I think under the tqs there's a 20mm too. There's quite a few options that no one knows or thinks about. Rear 13/14/16/19.
