    I have a 52 reg A3 TDI Quattro. The front ARB bushes need replacing. I have seen different sizes (18mm,19mm,21mm) mentioned. Can anyone confirm which size I need?

    Best just to go to Audi m8. Assuming you have a standard ARB, they will be able to do a lookup on your VIN and tell you which is the right part :)

    Cool, so do they supply the new bolts and brackets too?

    It's normally easier just to get a full new ARB for around £70 as the collars tend to break.

    They can supply bolts and clamps but they wont come with the bushes. All seperate. VIN supplied will tell you what sizes are needed

    Pretty sure they made an updated bush with a smaller hole to replace the plastic collar which can then be removed and put in the bin where it belongs. Any chance you could post the prices and part numbers if you phone the dealers as I'm after a set myself? Cheers.

    Just measure the ARB with some vernier calilipers, don't even need the wheels off.

    Get some longer bolts, (the balljoint to wishbone ones do well) Makes it much easier
