Want a upgraded Anti Roll Bar LOOK HERE
« on: 11 March 2012, 21:29 »
So you've lowered your car and now the driveshaft is rubbing on the Anit Roll Bar.
These are the recommended arb's:

Mk4 Golf R32 - 1J0411305AF (23mm)
Mk4 Golf 4 motion - part number and size needed ....
Mk1 Audi tt - part number and size needed ....
Audi S3 - 1J0411305AA (19mm)
Skoda Octavia VRS - 1J0411305AD
Seat Leon Cupra R (MK1)
Whiteline ARB

All the above go under the drive shaft and WILL not rub regardless or how low you go. You may need to fit adjustable drop links as well.

The likes of the Eibach, H&R, FK ARB or any other which loops over the top of the driveshaft will only give you a little clearance and depending on how low you go may rub.

Any other info you think will be helpful please post and we'll add it.

"Part number: 1J0411305AD off me is £70 Octavia vRS pre-facelift anti roll bar :-) RRP is about 60 odd quid + VAT"


thats off a mate who works at skoda. so unless you have a mate that works there you will proberbly get charged a bit more. but 70 is a rough price

I use the Neuspeed ARB. It does go over the drive shaft but I have never had rubbing issues, even when low. Just another option, maybe.

Skoda Octavia VRS - 1J0411305AD

what do the 2 letters AD at the end of the part number mean?

ive found a arb with the same part number except it has the letter E instead of AD  :undecided:

also what does the 23mm and 19mm in the first post represent? arm diameter or..?

As long as the ARB is off a mk1 octavia it will fit.

Its the diameter of the ARB

You need to use adjustable drop links plus add a spacer
