    Bolts???

    Could anyone tell the the part number for the pinch bolts on the front suspension arms. Need 2 new 1's.
    The grinder had to be used. Need my new springs on.

    I'm guessing for the two upper arms in to the upright?

    Don't go to main stealer they arent anything special

    I think they are m10 x 100mm

    Wish I had known this!!
    Bruised knuckles and a wife that keeps saying "are you finished yet" doesn't do me any good on a sat morning.
    Will get some m10 x 100 for this weekend..

    Yea, I bought replacement pinch bolts from the dealer as I was told I'd need them when I fitted my new springs. But in the end we did the whole job without actually needing to touch them. Were only a couple of quid though I think.

    I placed planks under my discs so I didn't stress the cables and didn't need to disconnect any of them.

    FOR SALE: Eibach Sportline Springs from B5 A4. £50 - PM for details.
