RS2 front ARB : 28 mm
Thus at 28mm, the RS2 front roll stiffness would be 1.57 times that of the
RS2 rear ARB: 16 mm
Thus at 16mm, the RS2 rear roll stiffness would be 1.61 times that of the
S2 front ARB : 26 mm
Thus at 26mm, the S2 front roll stiffness would be 1,17 times that of the
S2 rear ARB : 15.2 mm
Thus at 15,2mm, the RS2 rear roll stiffness would be 1.31 times that of the
Interesting, is that the RS2 roll stiffness is 50% greater than that of the
stock CQ/90Q-20V, front and rear, while the S2 is only about 20% front and
30% rear greater than the stock CQ/90Q-20V.
This weekend, we will be pulling the rear subframe, struts and ARB (ASB,
whatever) from a 90 to install on my CQ. The junkyard wants $150.
Apparently you have the older rear subframe without provision for an ASB,
too bad! $150 for the subframe, or what?
Anyway, I already have a 22 mm 4K bar that I will also be installing, so I
will also be able to comment on that setup as well.
This 22mm bar is going on the rear, as I have done, right? @5.75X stock
rear stiffness (if your CQ/90Q had a rear bar). My links to the strut tower
were easily modified to accomodate this bar, the only mod.
