all 306's are tousion bar suspension,

i think you will need to get one which already has ABS, as the arm's will have a mounting point for the sensors,also the hub have the ABS rotors,

I've got one of these sitting in a livestock trailer at the moment from a car I broke for spares.

Only problem is I'm in Glasgow!

All 306`s have two torsion bars,one for each radius arm.All you need to know when getting a replacement is ABS? Rear discs or Drums.Have a look at www.sspengineering.co.uk I have used them a number of times for recon Peugeot rear axles without problems.

A torsion bar is a "spring",Two rear wheels,two rear radius arms,TWO TORSION BARS!! one for each corner.There is a role bar which is hidden inside the cross tube and if its on a parts illustration page may look just like a torsion bar.Sorry to sound like a big head but I`ve stripped 100`s of Peugeot rear axles.

As Oldpug says, there's two!

The third, inside the tube, is the Anti Roll Bar. The two bars that are the springs are external to the tube.

So that's where three comes from :wink:
