    S3 ARB's and settings

    Hi everyone.
    Well it's time for another mod and i decided to go for
    new arbs front and back!
    Which one to choose and how to get the settings right?
    Is there any other thing i should look after for while changing the arbs?

    I noticed some strange vibrations-woobling in the right front wheel while
    passing slowly over the bumps. Top mount on suspension maybe?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Cheers

    Re: S3 ARB's and settings

    I've gone for KW front and rear ARBs and am really happy with them. Couldn't tell you the settings as my local favourite Indy fitted them for me
    S3 8P2 Ice Silver, RNS-E, Bluetooth, iPod connection, Adaptive xenons, black styling pack, sunroof, privacy glass
    Mods since owned: Milltek Resonated TBE, Neuspeed P-Flo, Loba HPFP, Sachs Clutch with Loba SMF, Unicorn Motor Developments custom remap, brakes + suspension upgrades, LEDs internal and external, more interior kit

    S3 ARB's and settings

    The settings are going to depend on what you want and how stiff or soft you want the setup and what your dampers are set to.

    I have H&R ARBs on mine set to the stiffest of two settings and the dampers also fairly firm.

    Once the rest of the work done recently has settled in I may loosen the rear off a little.

    i've had both set on hard first and it was great, rock solid but decided to try soft front and hard rear now. it feels good. not as firm as first setup, but great for everyday.

    oh and they are H&R.

    Thanks for replies guys!
    My coilies are set to full hard at the moment to prevent rubbing
    issues when cornering because i'm on 19'' rims ET45 and running S3 very low!
    I'm gonna get the 18'' or 17'' lightweight rims and some semi slicks tyres.
    The H&R ARB's are no.1 choice i believe and i'm going to follow this route,
    settings is just something i would need to adjust couple of times to suit my needs.

    On H&R ARB's everwhere says that no comfort is lost. True or false?

    Cheers guys
