    Afternoon boys and girls.

    I've finaly got hold of a pair of new style wishbones for my s3 :).

    The only thing is i'm so confused on what bushes i need.

    I want to use oem bushes for the rear of the wishbones, so i believe i need solid tt bushes! For the front im thinking of useing powerflex ones.

    Now which will i need, ive read you can get 30mm or 45mm?

    With me changing from my current pre-facelift arms to facelift arms will all my exsisting bolts be fine or will they need changing to accomodate the new bushes?

    Any help much appreciated as it's doing my nut in lol.

    Just done a bit of reading, i think i will need the 45mm bush for the front of the arms as i now have the newer ones, the older ones have 30mm bushes from what i can find, this correct?

    Your right mate, the later arms use the bigger 45mm front bushes.

    Its only the bush that's larger isnt it? Not the actual hole in the middle for the bolt to go through? I just want to make sure with me changing from pre to post facelift arms.
