    ive just been out changing the inner wishbone bushes(rear of the car) and i noticed theyre appears to be bushes that the wishbones bolt round on the outer side.

    ive tried looking for them on camskill and powerflex but cant find them, does anyone know what they are???? they seem to be part of the axle and are they supposed to move around freely as to me they look like they need changed.

    heres the link to the diagram as im sure you'll know the inners are number 12 but the outers i cant find
    POWERFLEX - Rear Wishbone Inner Bush - Audi - S3 Mk1 Type 8L 4WD Quattro (99-2003) £80.57 Polyurethane Suspension Bushes Audi - S3 4WD

    cheers

    You need to look under the VW Golf MkIV bushes on the Powerflex site, that's the only place I spotted them.

    If its the bushes that are in the actual hub you are on about (and are the part number aragorn posted) then there are no poly bushes available I am aware of as they are swivel type joints rather than a bush...

    Never had to replace one as yet... I would imagine GSF could get them else its the dealers... this bush typically seizes which then leads to the tie bars cracking and breaking...

    Oh this is interesting, the part number tuffty gave has been replaced with the one i gave.

    It seems they've done away with the bearing, and replaced it with a normal bonded rubber bushing!

    Goto the dealer and buy them there IMO. Unless you can get proper OE versions.

    Humm... a little searching netted the following...

    ...and...
    Google Translate

    Seems like they may have changed the design (not surprising considering they have been the cause of the tie bar failures)... not seen any of these on later cars as yet though... will keep an eye open now that I am aware...

    Yeah... they are the originals... all Mk4 chassis AWD's I haev seen to date use them... from what aragorn has noticed though is that they changed in 03 which is when 8L went out of production however the Mk4 chassis carried on for a few years in the TT and R32...

    If I were a betting man I would think all 8L quattro's had the earlier bush but later TT and R32's got the newer one..

    Yes... its seizes and causes the failure of the ties bars :)

    I believe so yes... regardless a dealer will know its been superseded and only supply the current part anyway...

    I was under the impression that that was the right part, yes, but reading further I'm now a bit confused...
