    S3 / TT suspension part numbers

    I've just bought some TT Quattro rear shock for my S3 on the cheap as im fairly certain mine are past it and the knocking noise is becoming unbearable. Has anybody fitted TT shocks before ?

    Part number on the TT shock absorber is 8N0 513 025 K. I'm not 100% sure there going to fit but i will give it a go.

    Cheers
    Sean

    Yes i can't see any reason why they wouldn't fit considering they are almost the same car but i suppose you never know. They have only done 9,000 miles so once on they should be an improvement.

    Anything else that would be worth replacing while the shocks are off the car ?

    Currently, I'm using TT front driveshafts and a TT prop - so as far as I'm concerned, most other things should work also...

    Just checked part numbers:

    The S3's rear shocks are 8N0512011H

    Same numbers, or there abouts, so I'd say yes.
