    hey all,

    im after a couple of specific items for my car and wanted peoples opinions of the best supplier of these parts (and also the best price) , i know the obv suppliers like awesome etc but im after feedback from people aswell how have actually dealt with the vendors and have had a good experience. if possible id prefer to buy stuff from vendors like badger 5 rather than give money to the " big coporeations " to speak.

    im after the below if anyone has any suggestions:

    1. tt/r32 quick steering rack

    2. front end full poly bush kit

    3. fixed rate dampers and springs

    4. best tyre suppliers etc

    also if sam reads this , can you pm me an up to date price for a 3" downpipe and manifold please??

    again im sure ill get a few search bar comments but im after people's personal experiences and to buy this stuff of a small vendor if possible. that people have worked with before

    cheers

    Morning,

    I'm sure we'll be able to help you out with 2. and 3.

    What drop were you looking at from the kit?

    the s3 rack is the same as the tt one, count how many turns it is from lock to lock, I think s3/tt is 2.7 and normal is 3.5 turns
