Uprating ARB

Has anyone fitted uprated ARB's to a stock suspension S4??

I love the low look but , as a daily, I hate the constant scraping and don't want to go air sus

I need to firm up the corner sway so ARB's are the way to go I think.

Had H&R's on the b5 and loved those but never used them on stock setup

I lowered my mine on eibachs & fitted the eibach rear ARB.
makes a huge difference

I fitted H&R ARB's on stock suspension. made the world of difference! only slight disadvantage was a tiny bit more tramlining,but not that noticeable!

I should say that the eibachs only dropped the S4 by around 10mm (just what I wanted) so speed bumps etc are not an issue.

I only fitted the rear ARB as IMO fitting both would of brought the understeer back that I was trying to reduce.
I can now get the rear out at will in the corners,so it had the desire effect (no sports diff)

H&R roll bar?  Or Eibach?

Rear only just like fitting the thicker RS4 rear bar to the B6 B7 S4.  Transformed my B6!  Leaving the front might even prevent the tramlining 'pdh 14a' mentions?

It was an eibach rear ARB I fitted.
I still get some tramlining though

Thanks for the feedback guys

How bad is the tram lining In real day to day and then how good is it for track??

I need to eliminate roll on track as it's quite noticeable ....

But day to day it's not bothering me.

Tramlining is not a big issue IMO,just more noticeable

Thanks James
Is that without any other suspension mods???

Yeah its nothing major, especially running 255's,you just feel the car finds its own way a little bit more,your not fighting the wheel!

If you fit the Ultra racing front strut brace the tramlining is considerably reduced
james-Audidoctor

no other mods buzzard and all is well
