Title: Anyone selling Cupra/S3 alloy wishbones?- Now sorted...
Post by: Dave J on October 15, 2020, 10:56:59 PM
Hi all,

As per the title - if you have these for sale I could be interested.

Think the same arms came on a Passat (B6) I think - but can't remember...

thanks,

Dave

Yep, Passat B6 is the same and more plentiful ie cheaper. If you have lowered suspension, then I believe the Passat balljoints are 5mm thicker and correct roll centre.

Thanks colesey - all sorted. Managed to get my old ali ones back from the garage. I used Superpro balljoints - they lasted 6 years, which i guess is twice the warranty they offer. Not sure if I will use the wishbones again with new bushes or not - was advised OEM bushes are more resilient than poly ones...

Passat ball joints are taller and correct a cars geometry a bit, if it has been mildly lowered.
