Ok i am planning on getting some KW V1 Coilovers soon hopefully and i want the car low so obviously i am gonna need to replace the front arb!

Which ARB is gonna be best for lowness and without catching?

An R32/S3 ARB which i believe fits on the KW coilovers or the Eibach big loop ARB?

Thanks!

I'm on FK coilovers, wound down about the same as Bowdie with a H&R 22mm ARB (or 23 maybe, i forget). No rubbing issues on the ARB

I only bought the H&R because I got it 2nd hand though, the new price for just the front H&R is about the same as for both front and rear eibachs.

Alex - usual retail price for the V1's is ?600, so ?530 seems a good deal (difference will pay for the arb[;)]) You should also check the group buys section - there is a thread on fk's, Awesome will do them for ?400 all in[:D]

thanks for that bowdie!

yeah i was considering fk's, but i like the stainless steel factor on the kw's, thats whats drawing me towards them and the fact that u can use an r32 arb!

Dealers was where I got the bits, the R32 bar has the advantage of being 23mm, the S3 ones is 20mm. You need the drop links too and new bushes.

You are only limited on lowness then by the driveshaft hitting the chassis leg. This is how mine sits:
