GTA ARB'S for my 156 Twinspark??

Anyone replaced front & rear ARB's on a 156 skinny (or 147) with the GTA ARB's ?

anyone know the standard Front & rear ARB dim's (mm) in comparison to the GTA's?

Re: GTA ARB'S for my 156 Twinspark??

Well I did replace front and rear ARBs with GTA ones on my 147, but it is JTD...

Standard is 22mm front and 14mm rear, GTA is 23mm front and 16mm rear.

I cant really tell you what difference do GTA ARBs make, because I changed them along with Koni FSDs and Eibach ProKit. But compared to standard sport pack suspension body roll is greatly reduced with this setup...

i have the eibach ARB's. not sure what the difference is in mm versus the GTA ones, but the eibachs at least come with poly bushes, so you dont have to worry about the bushes wearing out.

I also have Eibach's fitted

Front is 26mm, Rear is 18mm and the car drives very flat. The Eibach ARB's dont come with mounting brackets so you have to remove them from your current ARB's and then fit the poly bushes...........I dont know why Eibach just didnt give you the brackets too

Bloody annoying isn't it. Could these brackets be bought anywhere? Thinking of buying the Eibach ARBs.. I know I've just replaced the suspension and the Q2 diff has already been done so it would mean dropping the subframe just to do one little job, but what the hell,

I fitted GTA roll bars front and rear at the same time as Eibach springs (still got original dampers)-Makes a massive difference!
