    S3 Top Mounts

    Hi Chaps,

    Hopefully changing my shocks next week, as she is bouncing around all over the place, and lifting the inner front wheel when accelerating through uphill corners, and the forums suggest replacing the top mounts at the same time.

    Which of these bits do I need to get? Both the top two items, or just the Febi Bearing? The existing ones don't look in bad condition, but while the strut is out...

    Cheers,
    Alistair

    You need 2 of the top ones, and 2 of the 2nd downs... definitely worth doing at the same time.

    Am i right in saying if the top mounts have gone, they start to creak & judder when you turn the steering wheel?
    ...... Now this one's MUCH better!...

    Is there anywhere that sell uprated topmounts which lowers the car a bit more for the fronts?
