i think u need to get the ARB set.
the ARB, the "satay stick" with the bushing., and the holder to body with bushing.

You'll need GTI or aftermarket absorbers also.
The GTI's ARB is mounted on the absorbers while the normal satria ones are mounted on the lower arm.

Sifu has spoken :adore: GTi ones are mounted on the absorbers. Evo 1-3 ARB will fit in GTi but not GSR or normal satria as it is mounted on the lower arm. Even after you have the ARB, you'll need the stab link to connect your ARB to your absorbers.

u can improve ur handling via changing ur satay bush to more harder PU material on the stock ARB system.

4) Satay bush?

I think satay bush = stab link (Correct me if Im wrong). Anyway, if ur sourcing for good aftermarket ARB, u can go for Whitelines. Few of our GTi members are using Whitelines ARB and it works like charm.

Combination Im not really sure. Never used that before as its kinda pricey for me,but its worth every penny u spend if u go for Whitelines.

oem absobers.. KYB should cost less than 200 a piece. bought mine for 130. long time ago.

Stab link should cost RM 50 below for taiwans.. slightly more for OEM proton.
Ori Evo's are mucho expensive. The difference is.. which one will last longer. Has one taiwanese one.. the whole thing broke at the hinge and totally dropped off while i was connering..

ARB.. thickest would be those UR abrs.. 20mm i think. No idea how much.. Ori is.. 16 mm.. i think

Bush.. super pro .. less than RM 100, 2 piece. I have if u want. PM me

Thats all you need... U may want to add in sgti spring to go with your absorbers. They are slightly harder.

If mounted properly.. then nice and slightly hard. If not.. you will be hearing lots of "bunyi tikus" very soft .. but audible.. makes u think like u got small BOV.

While you are on it.. perhaps u may want to consider changing your crossmember to evo's.
