    Coilover question - Anti-Roll bar on strut or crossmember??

    Im looking to buy some H&R coilovers but im not sure what model to buy? Is my anti-roll bar on the strut or crossmember? I have an 2001 8L S3.

    This is an extract from the H&R website.

    I think all S3's have the ARB droplink attached to the strut and its some of the A3's that have the link going to the wishbone. Its easy enough to see mate if you turn the wheel to full lock in either direction you should be able to see the ARB droplink and where it attaches. Here's a link to the page on VAGCAT showing the ARB setup, you will have to register to see the pick though mate. http://www.vagcat.com/epc/cat/au/A3/...09/52/2570935/
