    Can aluminium TT wishbones be used on an 8l A3? How do they effect the geometry? Do you need the TT hubs as well?

    Cheers.

    TT's don't have alloy wishbones do they? I'm fairly sure they're cast steel.

    They are however, different, and better. the same wishbones are found on S3's, R32's, and TT's.

    They offer added camber adjustment, and early rare mk1 TT arms give more castor too. to make the most of them you'll also need TT hubs, and a TT steering rack, with the track rods bolting to the underside of the steering arm to reduce bump steer.

    Using TT wish bones will do away with your mounting threads for the ARB, so you'll need a TT ARB and drop links too, which go under the driveshaft.

    Aluminium wishbones? TT/S3/LCR ones are forged steel

    Does anyone know what the benefits of the tt wishbones are? How are tt hubs different? Does the tt anti roll bar mount to the original positions on the a3 subframe?

    Cheers
