    front lower wishbones

    hi all, ive got some front lower wishbone bush wear on my 2006 2.0tdi a3 sport and was wondering how hard are the new bushes to fit? or would it be easier just to buy 2 new lower arms instead of replacing the bushes? any help would be greatly appreciated!

    oh and wheres the best place to get the above. . . . any ideas??

    thanks

    The only place you'll get them is an Audi dealer at 110 each !

    The bonded rubber mountings are 11 each

    The front bushes are a pain in the arse!

    I tried taking them out myself and gave up after an hour, afaik you need a press to take them out and refit.

    If you're fitting new arms fit TT ones. They've got adjustable camber which when set higher is meant to transform the car. They're a straight swap, tho you'll still need A3 bushes to put into them so it doesn't really solve your problem...

    I went to do the bushes on mine myself recently but had to give up because space on the passenger side was too tight to get in. Gearbox in the way... I've a DSG.

    Mines DSG too mate and had the same problem, you need to drop the subframe about 10mm to give you the clearance to slide the bolt out that goes throught the bush...
