    16 mm is good enough, you want it harder at the back 22 mm summit should be good. don't go for 19mm, i had my brackets broken before

    First of all, do you know what is an ARB for?

    Thanx for d info bro. It's weird hw 19mm could cause d brackets to fail. So is 22mm comes wit it's own brackets ? Sorry for asking too much...

    Actually, its good to hear from Fahzueg, he is the real expert when it comes to suspension. But on a layman term, I wouldn't recommend you to go for the 22mm, as based on my experience with the 19 mm, the car felt very hard at the rear. 16 mm we just nice. our stock arb would be 13 mm hollow

    As the name suggests, it helps to resist excessive roll but not to prevent roll. Your car must roll in a turn to prevent loss of traction. This loss of traction comes in different forms. Your front may lose first resulting in yaw in the front (understeer) or your rear may lose first (oversteer) depending on your chassis flex. And this chassis flex is very reliant on the stiffening components incorporated into your car. One of them is your existing anti roll bar. The anti roll bar has to be connected from your strut to strut with the center secured to your axle. So if your car does not come with an ARB in that axle, you will have to consider a strut bar instead.

    The golden question: Are you suffering from understeer or oversteer during hard turning? If you aren’t but you feel that your roll is bordering on traction loss, I will suggest that you change your shock absorbers instead. If you are using your OE coil springs, I can suggest that you replace it with the Japanese/Thai made KYB excel G or German made SACHS 300 series (only for CS3 at the moment). You can buy them all at JC alignment in Toh Guan. ARB should only be considered after your shock absorbers have been replaced.

    Thank you, I am flattered. I just make a living doing this. People like you guys guarantee that I still have a plate of chap chai png on my table during every meal.
