Such a shame I'm boring you... Not arguing anyway...merely stating fact based upon experience. I've not argued that ARBs on otherwise standard cars won't give a huge improvement...they will...but on an S3 with it's pathetic damping it's potentially dangerous. Feel free to choose to ignore my observations...but I had the rear of my S3 snap unload twice on the standard suspension / ARB which tells me the rear dampers aren't up to the standard ARB never mind a stiffer bar. I really couldn't care how many people write their cars off finding out the hard way...the warning is there...it's up to the individual whether they heed it or not. Congratulations...what class/car? (If you don't mind me asking..purely out of interest...as I'm a fan) We'll have to agree to differ on our thoughts on suspension. They are T1-Ss? Never seen anything like that before...my last 4 sets were perfect (on 3 cars)...right down to the wearbands with no evidence of cracking like that... They are my T1-Rs, taken today...maybe 10,000 miles, 18-20 months old...no cracking.
