Anti Roll bars

    At the minute the car is standard but i plan to change the 17s to 18s, fit a 40/50mm suspension kit, probably eibach/blistein combo and possibly anti roll bars if they are needed

    i know all about the handling problems of mk4 golfs and the anti roll bar supposedly transforms the handling brilliantly

    does anyone have any experience with their 8p a3 with anti roll bars and think they are a good modification?

    what would you recommend?

    and which suspension set up would you think is best?

    i have been down the coilover route before and to be honest wasnt that fussed but im sure i could be persuaded again!

    We sell loads of H&R ARB's and i've got them on my S3 and i think they're great! As for the springs/dampers, that seems a pretty good choice your thinking of there!

    so you think the car would handle a lot better with some anti roll bars?

    would this make the ride harder at all?

    dont want to lose total comfort

    thanks

    Is it true that you NEED arb's with larger hoops if you go beyond -40mm?

    50mm will start to rub on the drive shaft on full lock so a different ARB would be needed.

    An aftermarket ARB would solve this problem.
