    hi all,

    Due to a company van, my s3 is going to be having abit of cash spent on it now i dont have to fuel it like 30+mile aday.

    just wondering when i drop it on coilovers, (it will be low) what anti roll bar do i need, or drop links etc.

    Cheers.

    what you should invest in is a decent set of adjustable rear tie arms to adjust the negative camber that happens when you drop an s3! i got mine through a guy on here called s3dave who makes them. had no issues with mine. see my build thread to view them.

    The only thing you'll need depending on how low you go are (as JtotheD said) rear adjustable tie bars as there will be excessive negative camber. Unfortunately I don't think Dave makes them anymore though. You might need adjustable drop links if your standard ones hit your lower wishbone, Ive lowered mine probably 45+mm and mine dont knock so you'll probably be fine.

    As above, all you'll need to run safely will be adjustable tie bars! Go for the Forge ones, excellent quality and great value for money!

    Make sure you chuck those rear coilover adjusters in the bin as well if you're really wanting to sit low!
