Passat/S3 hubs


The damper hasn't hit full insertion into the hub.  Did you clean out all the corrosion first?  The alloy ones crust up really badly in the damper hole.

Also looks like you've used the tie rod nuts off the steel wishbones?   You need to fit Passat ones asap or the steel inserts will pull through.

Thanks for the concern, they are BC racing coilovers and have a lip on top which is butted against the hub, Don't worry all seated correctly. The nuts a Passat specific, you can see the big flanged nut  :happy2:

Changed the rear setup with camber arms so i can get some proper camber on the back now



Added some aero from A3




Front pads lasted 4 sessions of Brands, they did not fade once. Really did take a beating though!

Liking the under plastics from the A3, nice touch!
