Hi,

Need some help, I have fitted my koni coilovers and now I am getting the driveshaft catching on the ARB during hard left handers.

Question is do I fit the weitec part to just move the standard ARB or go for a new ARB kit?

Any veiws/advise greatly accepted [:)]

I'd go for a proper ARB kit if I was you, thats what I ended up doing and has made a massive difference to the handling as well as preventing the driveshafts from catching.

i got the eibach arb as everyone on here said to get one. I get them, then people say there are 2 versions. A lovely ?300 down the drain. I think the H&R is the best for clearence ?

Is it possible to fit the later arb with the bigger hoops? If you could get one for the right money [:)]

Go for the later Eibach ARB. 25mm front and back, about ?270 delivered.

I had an H&R and the newer Eibach ARB has euqally as big hoops. With the H&R and Eibach, my driveshaft hit the chassis before it hit the ARB. I've now gone for a more conservative -35mm H&R springs with Eibach ARBs and i don't get any ARB/Driveshaft contact and am very happy with the ride.

The thicker front and the addition of a rear TRANSFORM the handling and come with ***** (5star) rating from me.

I have the Eibach large hooped ARB from Rich (R1GTI), and have a drop of 35mm at the front with no catching at all.

I highly recommend this mod to improve the handling, I can now control the back end when coming of roundabouts with great ease [:D]

Fitted the venom droplinks yesterday!

Took about 15 minutes and they work a treat! Not been able to get the drive shaft to touch since. [:)]
