    Hey fellas, ok some of you may remember a while back I bought all round Powerflex bushes and new ARBs:http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=26786
    well here are the pics so enjoy (ARBs aren't that clear):

    Old ARBs:

    Old Bushes: JUST LOOK AT THE STATE OF THEM!!! :no:

    Rear ARBS:

    Rear Wishbone Front Mounting Bush:

    Steering Rack, Front Wishbone Inner Bush, Front ARB:

    Front Wishbone Front Bush:

    Drove it for a bit, the ride feels good, haven't been able to properly push the ARBs but from what I can feel it seems that back of the car swings in a lot quicker when the body is about to roll. As for vibrations from the bushes it doesn't seem much different, the whole car feels more solid to drive, I like :rockwoot:

    ARBs = £350
    Bushes = £200
    and that's without labour costs

    I got it done at my local garage, don't think I could do somethin like this, requires too much mechanical know how for me

    nice one....

    you always seems to be about 2 weeks ahead of me in the mods department. Thats exactly what im looking at doing.

    Was only thinking about R32 ARB instead.

    What made you go for the Neuspeed ones?

    I'm guessing that it's the smaller front ARB compared to the R32...which will give a keener turn in (R32 is more nose heavy with it's engine sat sloping forward and carrying it's weight high up)

    The R32 ARBs are good...but the Neuspeed ARBs give less understeer...or a more neutral chassis, if you like.

    Well, it took me a while to choose but I'm thinking of keeping the car for a while, and just wanted a good aftermarket company over the Oem ARBs for the R32, and isn't the R32 a mm bigger? (for the fronts)
