    biglockie: if its a FWD there is two large bushes that the rear axle pivots on and if they're knackered it'll make the rear end feel loose.

    If its quattro then i guess the bushes in the pic docurley posted will all need replaced. Didnt your polybush kit replace those too?

    Yeah, the back bushes are possible as a DIY, but its hard work.Night and day difference even with new OE bushes, it tightened mine up no end

    both of my cars have them factory fitted, so if audi fit them they must work?, bought it for my old 1.8t but collected parts the same day i bid on new car, then a few weeks later i thought ill fit that to my new one only to remove cover and find one already there

    got to be better than the single mounting point ones
    and this was the reason i got it
