    Eibach anti roll bar kit

    Im thinking about getting an eibach or similar anti roll bar kit. Has anyone done this? Some feedback would be good.

    Also a sump guard? Because i've hit the bottom of the car a few times now and its only so long untill i crack the sump. Cheers guys

    Loads of folk go on about the H&R ARB's and just how much they improve the handling of the S4's - not really heard anything about Eibach - but dont see why it should be any different.

    My car is in bits as we speak having coilovers & ARB's fitted. I would have liked to have done it in stages, but it just didnt turn out that way.

    The biggest improvement to be had is at the rear on the S4... I am sure the A4 would see the same improvement too,.

    I had my H&R ARBs fitted and WOW - the car steers dead flat and has immence turnin & just keeps turning the harder I steer the car. It feels so planted and just does as the steering wheel/I tell it. I do have the H&R coilovers too...

    No, A4. For the A3 it's either 22 front or 26 front and 22 rear.

    besides the obvious it just gives a tighter and stiffer ride but keeps the 3 adjustable settings.
