    RS4 REAR ANTI-ROLL BAR

    Hi all, having spent the last few days trying to locate a strange noise from the rear the opinion seem to be the anti roll bar bushes have split ( according to a audi master tech anyway ) so i know have a genuine reason to upgrade to the rs4 anti roll bar,is anyone able to tell me exactly what parts are required and any part numbers would be a great help.

    Thanks in advance,
    Matt

    Thanks James, the guy did also mention the roll bar links,i believe this is where the ends of the arb meet the suspension set up?? need to try and find a part number for them.

    ive just done all this including the rear drop links, i ordered them at the dealer using my chassis number. All the above parts are correct and fit ok. I found that the bushes though were not easy to get on. They where the same part number as the ones on my car from standard and the centre bore seemed to small for the thicker bar diameter.I thought about looking to see if the rs4 bushes where bigger but instead I put them in a cup of hot water which softened them up enough to squeeze on.

    Thanks for that swarcup, just to confirm am i right in thinking you fitted bushes and drop links from your standard roll bar (although new ones) to a rs4 roll bar or were all parts from a rs4 roll bar, forgive me if i'm not reading your post correctly.

    yes thats correct the drop links where for my car and not from an rs4. the bushes that are numbered above where the same part number as the ones i removed. I thought that the centre bore was to small although they fitted with a bit of force and heating them.

    Best value for money handling (or performance) mod by far!

    10 / 10 for me: I'd recommend people buy the parts on the way back from picking up their "new" car and thrash it through a few corners, fit the RS4 RARB and then try the same road again.

    It's Audi OEM parts and makes the car handle in a far more controllable and predictable way, so it's really in the world of "why didn't they have this as standard?!?".

    Not sure why people do the front ARB: theoretically, it will keep the car even more level, but it will make the car understeer more and if you're getting that much body roll, I would suggest it's the springs or something else in the suspension that needs looking at.
