  1. My Mk2f used to suffer from some pretty 'fun' torque steer - caused, I assumed, by the fact that one TCA-ARB bush was all but disintegrated and the other a totally different shape/make. After replacing the TCAs and ARB and getting the tracking done the front end feels great but on the first motorway drive today its evident the torque steer is not only back but different and in the opposite direction! On hard acceleration or deceleration (I assume shifting enough of the car's weight around) the steering bias feels to swap sides - it almost feels like one wheel shifts ahead of the other on deceleration and then the other way round on acceleration if that makes sense? The old torque steer was a momentary impulse that needed to be countered - this feels more like a constant bias. I assume this is likely to be the alignment of the ARB in its bushes or the castor angles or a combination of the two. How should I go about adjusting this? Or have I got this all backwards and there's something else at play? Anyone else gone through this?
  2. I have trouble getting to the local VAG parts supplier near me and I've been looking at replacing a bunch / all of my bushes (rear ones have separated from their shell on one side and is creaking under load), thus I've been digging around online to source some replacements. Has anyone got any reccomendations for good quality OEM-style bushes online? Plenty pop up on a search but they're from what seem like a hundred different manufacturers - no idea who is trustworthy or not. I'd prefer to keep the car as original as possible so would prefer to stay with rubber bushes, unless of course someone has reason to persuade me otherwise.. Alternatively if there are any bush brands people think should be avoided like the plague it would be good to know!

    Wonky wheels

    I was looking into where my front wheels were rubbing after putting some larger wheels on that friend lent me to try. Turns out it was rubbing on the drivers side arch because that wheel sits about an inch further back than the passenger side wheel. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should investigate first, it's not the wheels themselves. Could worn bushes cause this? My initial thought was that the wishbone could be bent but it's never had a bump or anything.
  4. Hello polo people, i want everyones opinion on TCA bushes I was going to go for outer nylon and inner powerflex but iv been told nylon will be to harsh on crappy British roads. Now I can't make my mind up about it, so what do people recommend for a fast road car, iv got ARB blocks already and running some custom coilovers all round. I want anyone's opinion.
  5. Hello polo people, simple enough polybush or powerflex and any other company/brand that people would recommend for mk2-mk3 bushes. I brought some ARB blocks from another member on here and I want to change pretty much all the suspension and steering rubbers for polyurethane. For a fast road project
  6. Hi!! Has anyone ever fitted the 72.5 mm Powerflex rear beam bushes to there 9n3 gti? I did it Monday night and they are so so tight. I got them in with a bush tool but they dont sit perfect in there. Anyone done this to?
  7. Hi Guy's I have brought the full set of powerflex bushes for my 9n3 GTI apart from the rear beam bushes because I cant measure them accurately. There are two sizes available 69mm and 72.5mm does anyone know the size I should be ordering? Thanks,
