    Loose front end

    as the title says, my car seems to pull one way under power and the other way when im coasting, a mate suggested suspension arm bushes, just wondered what the opinions on here were, a bit of research has suggested its easier to just replace arms and maybe upgrade to S3 ones, is this right or am I misinformed?

    It could be anything from track rods, arm bushes, alignment to steering rack .

    You need to get it checked out rather than simply replacing parts

    Just been under the car with a mate, confirmed the problem as a wishbone bush, just wondering what the upgrade options are, are the S3 bushes any better? Any advice or suggestions welcome,

    AFAIK S3 bushes are stiffer as they are solid rubber, normal A3 ones have 'holes/spaces' in them to allow more flex for comfort.
