    Didn't realise the ARB bushes could be done without dropping the subframe. Might have to order some wishbones and bushes and do it all in one hit...

    great work as always dre!
    the springs may settle a little height wise, maybe another 5mm or so.
    i think you should get some spacers on there to complete it.

    This part number supposed to be for an LCR? Because thats just a generic topmount for all MK4 platform models..The LCR is model specific and has a Seat only part number.

    The LCR top mounts are a harder rubber than the normal ones hence everyone buying them to replace the standard ones. Where ever youve bought them has given you normal Leon mounts not cupra R most probably.

    Ok mate thanks for letting me know not going through the mission in changing them again, they did seem harder then originals but they do the job and better then the the 11 year old ones that were on there and by looking at them they do look like lcr top mounts

    This is the item number on eBay 330438822785

    No as they're seat specific so sadly I can't look them up (my ETKA is vw/Audi only). A quick google search would bring them up I'm sure. I can get them in from TPS and so on but when I go through them my margins are slashed massively compared to stuff I order direct from Audi/vw.

    manage to get some air con cleaner that cleans all the vents airways from all mould and the stinky smell that i have been getting for a few weeks now i changed the pollen filter a few weeks back and the smell was not as bad but still there so gave this ago today and has done the job nicely no more damp dog smell



    also got some front and rear lower arm (wishbone) bushes as one side seemed knackered when lowered the car the other week


    the new ones also gonna change the ball joints as well when i take this on





    got to sort out the rear creaking issue to i am certain its the rear rose bush on the tie bar from what i have been reading on here does not look an easy job
