    Hi folks,

    After many years of VW ownership, I'm now a 4 ring convert.

    What better way to start than with a question.....

    I've got a bit of a knock which I'm 99% sure is a worn dogbone mount. Are there any alternatives to the Powerflex one? I've had poly dogbone mounts on other VAG cars and they are a little harsh, a solid rubber mount would be somewhere inbetween standard and poly.... I just don't know if they exist.

    Also would it be the same parts as a Golf R32, or any other car?

    Ok, maybe not :)

    So alternatively, any opinions on the Powerflex mount?

    Welcome mate.
    Wish I could help, but I can't. I'm sure someone will be along soon who can though.

    Cheers,
    Scott

    Just fit one of the two uprated bushes in the dogbone. Powerflex bushes are some of the softest on the market.
