    Anyone got the front lower arms off a S3 laying about?

    Morning all.

    Has anyone got either pre or facelift S3 lower front arms lying about that they dont need?

    TT's and LCR's share the same arms too IIRC should you be having difficulty finding any mate... they are cast/forged rather than pressed steel...

    Just thought id ask on hear first, see if anyone had them lieing around lol.

    Paul, do you know if the facelift arms are a lighter design to the pre-facelift ones? Also i keep reading different post about the arms been different in the bush side of matters, if i were to buy the newer arms, would i be able to use pre-facelift bushes as i hear they are better!

    Any info guys is welcome.

    The later arms had a larger (more compliant) front bush than earlier ones IIRC... I know this to be the case on TT's at least... Its not a major issue as both will fit just make sure the rear bushes are the non voided type and use powerflex in the front...
