    Common problem on A3s you will have to lift it up a bit or i think there is a different ARB that stops it

    I think i no what the problem is, I no it wasnt doing it before i fitted my Dogbone bush and when i did it i supported the engine so it didnt move and make it easyer to get back in and i can remember that i had to jack the front of the engine up a bit more for it to fit back in. anyone else had any isues like this when fitting the powerflex dog bone bush's?
