    Hi guys,

    Wondering what people's thoughts are on this. I've been offered a rear Eibach arb for a really good price. Problem is, I can't seem to source a front one unless I buy the pair for circa £300. I can only find H&R or Whiteline fronts sold separately.

    Opinions?

    Thanks in advance,
    Nath

    H&R are fine. I had H&R on front and rear (26/24) and were very good. I took them off to sell the car but I've changed my mind and I'll put them back

    No issues mixing afaik as long as you fit the corresponding bars as in for the right engine, gearbox, fwd or 4wd etc.

    Don't forget you can also tune the car with mixing ARBs and not uprating one or other. Just fitting an uprated rear bar will give the car more turn-in and you might actually like it just like that!

    Hmm, interesting point. I did consider this, as I've also heard the front one can be a pita to fit!

    Hi. Can you explain this? I am thinking of this and have already installed the Haldex Gen4 performance controller and KW's
    I need to reduce the understeer. Would updated/adjustable lower front steering suspension help like the supalloy?

    Sorry for the hijack.

    Which kW setup did you use?
    To my mind,the Haldex is probably the least important thing to uprate for road use,although it does improve traction,and more so on a track.
    .
    If you have a trawl through my thread,you'll find we've been all the way from stock suspension to a fully adjustable kW Clubsport setup,plus Superpro bushes,and antilift kit.
    .
    The A3/S3 is set up with understeer from stock,and also carries a lot of weight up front,and getting that dialled out is actually pretty hard work,and costly,but it might be worth a look through my thread to save my cluttering this one up.
