  1. Hi all, it’s been a fair while since my last visit to the site, but I’m returning once again to ask for your never emptying fountain of knowledge and advice. Currently my breadvan is lowered on what I believe is TA Technix shocks and springs. The ride is awful and I hate it. As I’m trying to restore the car and undo all the annoying things that the previous owner has done to it, I've bought new Bilstein front and rear shocks. These I believe are relatively decent OE replacements. I need to source suitable OE replacement springs. Can I use Bilstein for this too? Finally, are there any other components that I require before I change the suspension over? For example: bellows/boots, top mounts etc? Or will the currently installed parts suffice and I can just swap them over. Many thanks
  2. Hi all, I wanted to see if I could get some advice on my 9n polo Front Suspension Rear bush replacement. I'm looking to carry out the repairs myself but wanted to ask if I would need to take the car in for a wheel alignment once the repairs are complete? And if anyone has done a Front Suspension Rear bush replacement before and had any tips or things to avoid that they'd be willing to share?
  3. Hi all ive just changed my passenger side front suspension and need the 3 new top mount bolts can some one give me the OEM numbers for them please thanks Andy
  4. I have had a polo mk 4 1.2 for about 7 years (same car) and have become somewhat attached to it. I have recently decided to make it more rugged to do some light off-roading in it (as soon I will need a new car and thought it would be a fun thing to do with it for a while). I don't want to spend huge amounts of money on doing this and so have decided to use suspension spacers instead of replacing the suspension to get some more space for bigger tyres and wheels. Only problem is I can not find any spacers online that actually fit for example (Complete Lift Kit 30mm for Volkswagen GOLF, NEW BEETLE, POLO, UP!) this is on eBay but says it will only fit 2009-present and can not find anything similar that will fit my car. My question is has anyone tried to do this/ what did you find and use? And/or will these fit a mk 4 polo if it says for mk5 onwards only?
  5. Hello, I’m after a bit of advice reference fitting 14” P Slots on my breadvan that I have just bought. The tyres that are currently on the wheels are 185/60/14 and am having a few issues with rubbing at the back as expected. I will be lowering the car approx 40mm all round and ideally would like to keep the P Slots on the car so my question is, would a 165/55/14 tyre work without any rubbing on the rear? The P Slots I have are 5.5J et38. Any advice would be much appreciated otherwise it’ll back to the 4.5J 13’s that came with it! Many thanks
  6. I have a 1988 Coupe S and am lowering it on 14” BBS RA wheels. looking at options and came across this kit - has anyone tried it / got any photos or reviews they can share? https://www.eibachshop.co.uk/eibach-b12-prokit-suspension-kit-e90850360122_p31225036.htm#.XT8JVCXTWEc Thanks!
  7. Hi all, Next up on my list of MOT failures are the front anti-roll bar bushes. The ones on my motor seem to be different from the standard mk2f ones (see pic) Does anyone know where I can source some? Cheers as always, Tim
  8. Hi all, I’ve noticed my 97 6n is handling really poorly on the motorway, seems to be bouncing all over the place, steering really vaguely and blowing around more than it used to and just being a pita to drive. Im on original shocks with 40mm lowering springs so the shocks are probably pretty dead, however My control arm bushes seem pretty bad too but what I want to know is what I should replace first on a limited budget to see the biggest improvement in handling? I’ll sort the rest come mot when I’ve got some cash. cheers!
