    Got my S3 at the workshop today to mount the H&R springs (all went fine, it looks gorgeous and handles greatly) and the H&R front and rear sway bars.
    They only managed to get the rear bar installed.
    They say that there are problems with the front u-bolts because the bushings provided by H&R are too big.
    Anyone have had the sway bars mounted? Is this a known issue or are they saying nonsense?

    You need to split the OE bushes from the front bar and clamp them around the new bushes provided with the H&R bars..

    Pretty easy really, sure they were just a bit worried about having to take things apart..

    Thanks Jonny, they said that the front clamps are more of a D shape than a U shape, I guess they are made by two separate parts....
    Sometimes I'd like to take a day off, wear a mechanic suit and go there to see what they do and tell them how to do it....
