    Im going to do all the bushes but was going to use the standard Audi ones not poly, what I'm wondering is if this SEAT LCR front bush is worth a look at as an upgrade

    I would think the poly for the front is a better option tbh... that LCR one still looks voided but will be a higher durometer rubber than std... poly for the front bushes and TT solids for the rear work well imo...

    If you want ninja rears then use vibratechnik ones...

    I fitted a set of the LCR strut tops to an S3 today... they are noticeably harder than the std ones... need to sort mine out really...

    The ride height will be a little higher initially but should settle after a few weeks of driving...

    Hi Tufty

    thanks for the advise - Ive looked into Vibra Tech but they only seem to do engine mounts. So the TT has solid rear bushes and the S3 doesnt ? Do you happen to know the part number for the solid TT ones, Im having this all done end of next week so need to get the parts together asap !

    I don't have them handy no... I got mine from GSF though and they are available on ebay for around £20 a pair...

    I remember the LCR getting a fair amount of stick from the motoring press for being too harsh and bumpy - won't these firmer bushes have helped cause a bit of that?
