that is just the standard factory front SE bar.. Got a pile of them.

No need unless you have a Quaife. Otherwise you loose corner exit traction.. Ever wonder why they went with that on the vig
Yes I have tried them. Took it back out of my Viggen.

So the SE front bar is a GOOD thing if you have the Quaife but a negative if not?

I have had the Se front bar for years now anyway. But I have the LSD as of today :P

I personally wouldn't go with the larger front-arb....its far better on a FWD car to allow the front suspension to extend as needed...the way to tighten up the front of a FWD car is thru spring rates, not arbs. Take for instance, my old '90 GTI (daily driver)....ran 450 lb spring rates in the front with no arb and then 350 lbs in the rear with a 28mm rear arb.....the car road on rails and pulled 1.08 Gs on the skip pad on street tires.

You best bet is to opt for the coil-over kit GS sells and dial in some nice spring rates for your driving style....this is the option I'll be going.

PerkJ that is exactly why I had to explore stiffer springs. You can only bandaid so far with ARB. But everybody wants cheap.

Also you have to compare the wheel rate when comparing things like spring and ARB rates/sizes. On most cars a xx front bar does not equal the stiffness of the same size rear.

^ Then go for the 25.5 rear I love mine.

Or, hell, even look into a front strut tower brace.

Its about $100.

Its a pretty quick swap. I may buy a 25.5mm and swap it out for when I auto-X and leave the 22mm in for DD duties.

^ I've been thinking of this strategy too. I was getting pretty decent rotation in the last Autox a few weeks ago using lift-off techniques, but I would like a little more. I have whatever MP Performance used as their rear bar diameter (I think it's 23mm).
