Not Happy 156 GTA Rear Anti-Roll Bar

I want to do some work on by rear suspension over the summer so while I'm under there I'm thinking about fitting a GTA rear anti-roll bar.

As I had a few spare minutes today I phoned my local main dealer to get an idea of price and was quoted £179.00 plus VAT . I could get a full Eibach kit for not too much more! Are they extracting the urine or what?

I have one I took off my 156 GTA the day before yesterday, because I fitted an Eibach rear bar.

If you'd like to PM me with a price perhaps I could take it off your hands

Pleasure doing business with you

I think we may have one more used 156 GTA rear ARB in stock if anyone else is interested, plus I also have a new one available for a lot lot less than £179+VAT.

Stiffening the rear anti-roll bar reduces understeer, sometimes to the point where you can even get a bit playful with the rear end if you back off and give the steering a little flick mid-corner. I just upgraded from GTA to Eibach on the rear of my GTA and the front end feels a lot better powering out of a tight corner.

Rear is different. 156 & GT share the same, 147 is a different shape.

156/147/GT fronts are all the same.
