SS+ Owners, Help Req

Post by Daytona » Fri Dec 28, 2018 10:50 pm

Could somebody with SS+ measure their front ARB for me please?

After a bit of research it appears pretty much all A4’s including RS4’s with or without SS+ have a 29mm front ARB, yet mine is 31.5mm. Maybe it’s 29mm before it’s powdercoated or someone’s stuck a thicker one on but it looks factory.

Thanks in advance 👍🏻

Only the rear arb is different on ss+

The front are the same 29mm

Rear SS+ 22mm
Rear Non SS+ 20mm
Ss+ sits 10mm lower at rear

2.5mm of powder seems a lot. Got a picture of it by any chance? Preferably part number and maybe the end bit?

H&R front roll bar is 32mm. Could be that.

Pule, I thought 2.5mm of powder coat was a lot but it’s only 1.25mm per side so possible I suppose.
As for a part number, that would have made life a lot easier but the Sticker fell if ages ago! It was definitely an OE number and it looks OE to be fair, black with female threaded ends.

Threaded should be OE. Possibly the front Hotchkiss bar is threaded too, can’t remember but doesn’t sound like you have that one anyway. Also think that one is 35mm (could be wrong).

Not unless we both are, mine still has the audi part number Sticker on too.
