    Hi, Will the arb from an RS4 fit onto a 1.9tdi avant, are the arb's different from saloon to avant, going to lower the suspension and while i'm at it going to replace the drop links and want to do the rs4 arb mod, i know it's quite a straight forward job but would hate to order parts that don't fit etc. cheers.

    An uprated rear anti-roll bar won't make the back end of the car less twitchy.

    The RS4 rear anti-roll bar is thicker than the standard bar (22mm instead of 16mm), so it increases roll stiffness at the back of the car. This in turn reduces understeer, and makes the front of the car more responsive when cornering.

    a RS4 Anti roll bar along with my AP coilovers will work wonders compared to the standard set up along with new rubber

    my ARB'S ON my subaru was the best mod id ever purchased but it was the front that altered the car big time took away the 4wd understeer and changed the car dramatically i had 24mm front 22mm rears...... this helps big time when you have a bit of weight in the car's build aswell


    and more to the point Y NOT LOL !!!!!
