    hi, new to the forum and still trying to find my way around. i own a mk1 s3 in ming blue.

    just bought a set of coilovers and after reading a few threads on here it seems that if lowering by a large amount the front arb knocks on the driveshafts? is this correct?

    to cure the problem will a kw front arb do the job? iirc seen someone saying that it will sit under the driveshafts rather than going over the top? thus curing the problem?

    thanks for any help in this matter.

    cheers, mike

    i got told by dpm that the arb's only help front wheel drive cars not 4wd

    i asked the same question because mine knocks
    only answer i got was raise the suspension
