Swapped my front springs recently and had a pack of new top bushes and bearings from previous owner. When about to install the new ones I realized that the new ones were about 15 mm taller than the old. I considered if it could be the old ones being compressed, but it didn't look like it, and they had about the same firmness as the new ones. On top of that the moulding looked somewhat different between the two. So end of story I didn't dare to put on the new ones, changed only the bearing. The old ones still fitted well, though the cup in the engine bay rests away from the chassis itself, is that correct? (I'll post a pic later)
Question is; are there different height top bushes that will fit the S3? And if so, what differences are there and what should I choose? I guess if i fit a taller on the car will be sat slightly higher, right?
