    Default Compatibility between 206 gti and 206 gti 180 (RC)

    Hello im just wondering what parts are compatible between the two models. Im mainly focused on suspension parts.

    Ive tried to do a few different searches and have come up with no results (maybe i didn't look hard enough)

    Thanks Alex.

    Main difference is in the rears, IE RC has the same shock n torsion bar setup as the 206 CC and the GTi has a coil spring set up with that spare wheel under carriage thingy, pretty sure im on the money there, about to toss my fancy suspenion for something alittle more suiting my age

    All models of 206 have the same trailing arm, torsions bars and ARB setup at the rear. There are no coil springs.

    The 180 (and the 206 SW) differs in that it has two additional diagonal cross braces at the rear, which start at a new fitting clamped around the centre of the rear beam and finishing at each wheel hub.

    Torsion bars
    GTi: 19.5mm
    GTi180: 20mm

    ARB
    GTi: 21mm
    GTi180: 22mm

    Front ARB
    GTi: 20mm (22mm from April 2002)
    GTi180: 21mm

    The front springs are stiffer and the caster is different on the 180.

    I have no idea whether any of this stuff is interchangeable, sorry
