Ever wondered what bad control arms and tie rod ends look/sound like?

ded upper control arm

Still not sure how I lost a TRE on one side and a UCA on the other, but oh well. I guess the audizzle can't handle mobbin the dunes.

no thx.


Toe plates are ~$70, camber gauges are even more, and then I'd still have to deal with shifting the subframe to equalize camber and I dont know how to deal with the raised-toe alignment. This is one of the few jobs that I don't want to screw with.

I could probably get away with doing that, but I'm getting new tires right after I get the alignment done and I'd like the toe to be right so they last as long as possible.

spend the extra $20 and have it aligned at a dealer.

only "close" alignment specs are provided to anybody except a program that hunter has specifically for VAG dealers. plus, you don't need to do raised toe.


also, most cars you align the rear, then the front, or when you adjust the rear it will throw the front way out if you do the front first. but it actually works opposite on VW/Audi cars.

sounds like a plan. Fix your turbo, fix your suspension. Anything else?
Coolant leaks? Boost leaks?

not sure yet.

BFG g-Force KDW2's, Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport's, or Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric. I'll probably go with the bridgestones.

whenever i push down on my front quarter pannel it makes a squeaking noise somewhere in the front suspension. I was told it was just squeaky bushing but what do you think? It also does it when i turn the stearing wheel
