    as title says would a normal a3 strut fit an a3 quattro

    im looking for new strut and hub as mine is abit bent lol

    iv found a complete leg on ebay cheap but it just says fits a3's mk4 golfs etc the seller doesnt know if it will fit either. so i dont know how to find out if it will fit.

    if anyone knows or can tell me where to find out it would be appreciated

    Seems like a tough one although the quattro drivetrain may have extra weight so I'd personally say no.

    Can you not compare the part numbers to see if they match?

    EDIT: I maybe wrong lol

    as above the shocks on the front have the ARB mount on the lower spring cup, but the fwd A3 has the plastic link that bolts to the lower arm
