    Hi guys, I'm getting my dog bone bushes fitted in today, just wanted to check, do u really need to change the existing screws ones the new bushes are installed due to the added tightness it adds? I mean is there a chance of the OE screws breaking or snapping while held on with the new Polytherine bushes?

    I don't wont to put a dampener on it, but one of mine actually sheered of when we were doing it. Looked like water had got into the thread. So it was left up on a ramp for a day while I got a new bolt from Audi.

    Hopefully you will have no probs.
