    Thumbs up Anti roll bar broken! Need ramp and techie to replace!!!

    Just had my S3 serviced by a friend who's a VW matertech, for the most part the car is fine. But 2 issues need sorting ASAP.
    So any advice would be hugely appreciated please.

    1) Anti roll bar is broken and needs replacing, like it was bashed going over a speed bump or something (doesn't affect normal driving ATM). But my mate doesn't have access to a ramp to get it done.nso I'm looking for recommendations as to where I could get this done in the Northants or Milton Keynes area, and what sort of price I can expect.
    He says it's a whole front suspension drop to remove/replace the anti roll bar, and the gear box needs jacking up aswell :-/

    2) Breathing hoses are split. Spitting oil out everywhere. And these are hard moulded hoses that can only be bought from Audi? And ideas anyone?

    Bit of a bugger really but needs doing. Thanks guys
