    If Pedders make this bar and for a decent price what is the point of going any further?

    No technical reason to look elsewhere, but it was just for the convenience of getting it from somewhere in the EU, and avoiding all the Tax implications and cost of getting the bars shipped all the way from Oz then forwarded on to various parts of Europe.

    Their prices are very good though, you're wasting your time trying to find any better.

    I believe that is all you may need. An ARB lifts the inside wheel when there are a down force on the outside wheel. Now the Q4 have a limited slip diff at the rear, or so I am told. (I have not tested the Torsen diff, in the Q4 at the rear, for limited slip. The Torsen, Q2s that the guys are fitting to the GTA/GTVs are not)

    If it is a LS diff the handling will be ok when the inside rear wheel lift in a corner. The front diff is not LS so all torque to the front axle will go to waste, when the inside front wheel lifts.

    So in my humble opinion I will increase spring rates all round, but fit a stiffer ARB only at the back of the car, increasing the chances of lifting the rear wheel. Stiffer sport shocks will achieve much the same effect, without the down side, because shocks are 3 times stiffer at extending(rebound) than compression.

    Hi @colibry

    I can't find the "cad" file, did you ever get time to make it?

    @wrinx I know this is another thread resurection, but for a number of reasons I'm looking at getting some of these caliper brackets made.

    First off, I think that hole size is 10.5mm because the hole should be threaded for an m12x1.25 bolt, and the hole size for tapping a thread this size is 10.8mm

    In regards to the other drawings linked to immediately after yours, I think that these are also incorrect. The holes used for mounting to the upright appear to be in the wrong position.

    I'm putting together a 3d model for these brackets, and will post it up once I've finished.

    Here is the bracket needed, but please check the hole sizes because I think the 10.5mm should be different (and I guess you can use 12.5 or 13mm for the other two):

    So this is my interpretation of the 166 Brembo coversion brackets.

    Probably going to get one made up to see how well it fits.
