    Bottom arm differences

    I bought a new hub from a 2000 1.8t a4 saloon the other day

    I've had new arms waiting to go on for months, and because I need my car daily I thought il build the new hub up, get the pinch bolt out etc
    Then just swap the brakes over and refit


    Well as I fitted the arms I noticed the bottom ball joints are different between old and new, yet when I replaced the drivers side arms last year they were the same, (2003 1.9)

    One on the left is the same. It's just how much boot is down the shaft.
    One on the right, the seat has come out of the hub assembly. You need to take it off and put it back into the upright.
