    The front bar brackets will need to be drilled out as the nut & brackets are actually welded together, which is why audi changes the whole bar when the bushes are worn.

    You can reuse the brackets & bar, just make sure you get some good hard bolts or reuse existing bolts with new solid nuts.

    Not entirely true Eibach now produce a kit with integral brackets so you simply remove the old and fit the new - I have these on my car. You need to order the kit via your supplier.
