pretty much as above i have a completely stock 1995 1.2 arizona spec, only had a butchers to fine there is no front ARB, as i was looking at putting a combo one on i have as well as my cav rear ARB.

just thought id ask here out of interest, or has a previous owner possibly taken it of in the past?
no wonder why it doesnt feel like my old corsa that had a stock arb in front

As far as I know some did, some didn't.

Krazeedude's LS 1.2 didn't, my LS 1.4 did.

Someone may want to correct me but I thought a front ARB reduces over steering, and rear reduces under steer. So would the rear alone not be best? Or does it feel worse than your last?

As mentioned, some models have them and some don't.

With a front wheel drive, they usually have under steer characteristics as standard, so you don't want to make that worse by putting a really thick / stiff ARB up front.
A regular ARB up front will reduce the body roll so you'll benefit from one there, but making it too thick can ruin the already bad handling of the Corsa B
Thin up front, then the Cav one on the rear to keep the rear beam more rigid is the best combination IMO

i had one on my old corsa, felt more confident in corners, to be honest i got this combo one for a couple of quid i will try it with it on and and the rear arb on and will play with it, and see what its like without one or go get a normal one but i will give it a try with a combo front and cav rear. its only a few bolts for the front at the end of the day - but i cant imagine with both ARB's on (cav and combo) it would be much worse than what it is atm would it?!
