    Clunky front

    When going over rough or uneven ground I get lots of clunking from the front of my car. I've had plenty of Golfs before and this usually means the suspension top mounts are worn, is this the case with A3's too??

    the a3 is basically a golf in a new shell so same things apply.

    ARB bushes are common
    red to red black to black blue to bits

    What are the best bushes to use, standard rubber or uprated poly ones?
