    Do top mounts need to be changed on suspension kit?

    When changing to a new suspension kit do the top mounts need to be changed? Also how much difference will it make to the price?

    About 30 for the mounts and bearings, worth doing while there apart.

    I don't know if this is true of all S3's but mine never needed doing and the front struts came off 3 times in 20k miles and were checked every time...

    The Seat and Skoda guys always seem to be going on about fecked top mounts...

    Mind you, I always keep my eyes peeled for pot holes and sunken grids/covers so maybe I just drive sympathetically...
    Rarrrr! I'm not Lesdyxic!
