    hi

    im looking at putting some of coilovers on my a3 tdi.

    JOM Coilovers for Audi A3

    it has done 155,000 miles 2003 model and i would say the suspension is original all it has on at the moment is lowering springs standard shocks.

    im just wondering what else i would need to buy bushes etc.....
    is there bushes what sit on top of the 4 dampers ?

    any help or diagrams would be great as i haven't a clue whats down there

    thanks

    As a minimum you would need new Top Mounts and Bearings, may as well do the front balljoints as well.

    As above top mounts and bearings, depending on how low you go you may also need a new front ARB or drop links.
