    Anybody changed their s3 front ARB bushes?

    I'm doing mine asap, I've done the rears so know roughly what I'm doing but I've heard people really struggling with the job and suggesting fitting oversized bushes? This seems a bit mental, but what is everybody else doing? I believe I have a 19mm arb so I'm going to get superpro 19mm bushes unless somebody suggests otherwise...
    Cheers

    All depends if the sleves are in tack. I think someone has fitted oversized bushes but removed the sleeve.

    Personally I ditched the std S3 ARB`s and fitted R32 ones. Transforms the car and no more sleeves to split

    Whiteline 22mm front ARB, you wont be disappointed, much more positive steering and grip, and no sleeves !!

    Got to be easier than anything turbo/mani related though! Most relatively simple jobs turn into a PITA so we'll see

    make sure you upgrade the rear if you do the front otherwise it will understeer loads
