Currently have a corsa b sxi.
Would the front ARB off a gsi/sport (?) be a reasonable upgrade to the sxi ARB - since i think i read that the gsi/sport have a thicker front ARB (correct me if im wrong)
And a whiteline rear ARB make a reasonable improvement to what i have now, would it be worth it.

So in short -
Front ARB from a gsi/sport
Whiteline rear ARB
Compared to standard sxi set up

Thanks

you don't wanna get a thicker one on the front, that'll just increase your understeer. If anything get a thinner one on the front and thicker on the back. It'll improve front end grip and turn in response.

So what would be thinner than a standard SXI one? (other than removing it all together)

Whiteline front ARB's - they thinner or thicker

no need for a standard front one as its not a real ARB.

the sxi one is no thinner than a gsi/sport one, just shaped slightly differently so it doesnt foul the cat

I removed the front ARB and was impressed at the lower speed turn in. But when you are taking high speed corners and braking from high speeds things just don't feel safe enough.

BUT that is with my sus set up. If i had some coilovers i'm sure that it'd be a different matter.

So for now the ARB is back on and i feel save a high speed corners.
