    Angry front top mounts

    alright people after a bit of advice im sure ive got a front top mount gone but just wanted to check first , what im having is a creaking from the front( drivers side) no real noise when driving but when at like 15mph and below its creaking i jacked the front up and there is alot of movement in that side strut compaired to the other side the top mounts were not there best i think when i fitted my coilovers lol , anyone got any idea how much they cost per side (as i might as well do both at the same time) from audi/tps as i want to get it sorted soon as its making the car not very nice to drive at the mo
    off the road boohoo anyone got a gearbox for me lol!!

    if there is alot of play at the top i would deffo say top mount.

    have you checked its tightened up properley and seated correctly if so sounds like they need replacing.If one has gone,the other wont be far behind and is best to replace in pairs anyway

    To save me starting a new thread. I got a quick question two mates with an 8L and MK4 Golf got new top mounts and the top mounts lowered the front an extra 10mm. Does any one know where i can get some for the 8P? Only been able to find ones for the 8L and different cars. Cheers

    Yes fella

    Cheers for your helo the other day
    After i spoke to you gave a mate a call and meet up with him and few of the other lads later on in the day.
    One has supersport Poly top mount cost him £55 and the other one on the 8L has Eibach paid £108 both dropped extra 10mm at the front.
    Done a bit of searching and seems to be quite popular with the Leons, Ibiza, Golfs and Polos. Quite a few forums came up but nothing to do with the 8P. Pm'd Damien @ DPM and he didnt know where they were sold and only had them for the 8Ls

    Nice one ash!

    Well now we know 8Ls have them so someone must/might make some if there is none on the Market. I'll try find some info put myself and let you know if I find much out. Would be such a easy mod for 10mm more.
