Eibach ARB Alternatives?

so, i've ordered a set of Eibach ARBs from Larkspeed. They've rung me up to say that there's a delay in shipping at Eibach's end until June!

does anyone know of anywhere that has them in stock?

if not, does anyone know of comparable alternatives?

Larkspeed are getting back to me tomorrow with details of H&R ones, are these any good?

Since H&R do not make any antirollbars for the GTA, they should be grand

No-one has Eibach ARBs in stock, they've been out of production since 2010.

ive got some Whiteline jobbies but i think i got lucky with the availability and price of them though. I got them from Balance Motorsport, might be worth giving them a ding.

Eibachs are discounted to 299 EUR so about 265 GBP on shop.alfisti.net, but they don't have them in stock either....

saw those, thought the shipping charge might match the price i would be paying + shipping in the UK.

might try poly bushing the standard ARB for now.

If you get no joy I can give you the details of someone who can make hollow titanium ARBs, he just needs an old set to pattern match.

I was looking at going down this path to reduce weight whilst maintaining the benefits of the stiffer ARBs.

Please, do tell more. I am quite interested, but the price will be huge.

Scratch that, I mentioned this on here before and someone ran with it

Force Racing

There are GTA titanium ARBS on here

EDIT: Beat me to it, I asked about these from this guy ages ago but never progressed it, It must have been someone on here who did, its the only place I mentioned it.

The Eibach kit would be nearly £400 though, it's £300 ex vat on ebspares site and that price has been on there years, although is that price just for one ARB?

I am not sure that is a 147/156 GTA antirollbar, looks a bit strange.

it may well be for the "old" GTA, but it's a good example of the price.

Good example indeed. Not really worth that much money even though the weight saving is ~5kgs compared to Eibach or Alfastumper ARBs.
As for Whiteline, their ARBs for Alfa are not very good as they lack the fixings for the bushes and can slide from side to side.
I personaly would get the Alfastumper ARBs, but PeterK seems to ignore all emails and does not have a fixed shipping price to my country

PS. Yeap, but the rear ARB is not 24mm as mentioned there, and the ends are different.

Dunno then, are you going to buy one? If so email him and find out.

I know you have a grudge against me from the Monstro episode, but let's not get childish here.
Not that it's any of your concern, but the car is still with me and will always be, with the prices as they are, but most important, with the taxes and gas prices, I will never sell it for a few pennies. To be honest, I would never sell it even if the prices were high, as I do not know any other car I like better.

I'll make you a deal. Don't contact me again, - not under an Alias either. Don't contact my suppliers again, and stop sticking your nose in my business, where it most definitely doesn't belong.

Finally don't talk about me here on AO again. This time was one too many.

If you do all that, I wont take this "no GTA" thing further.

Funny, very funny. I can't imagine how would PeterK end up thinking that you don't have the car. Not far from the truth though


Anyway :

Actually all their ARBs are this way. Not an issue though, as you can either buy the lateral locks from them or improvise something with a pair of clips
