The VW MK5/MK6 and Audi TT/A3 platforms are exceptional choices preferred by tons of enthusiasts around the world. As these cars age, it is important to address those more involved maintenance concerns from worn and degraded parts, especially if you are modifying your car for performance. Unfortunately, this often requires refreshed bushings and suspension components that need special tools and equipment to service at home. We would like to introduce an easier solution to tackle maintenance, improve your suspension, and do it all at home with basic tools. Brand new from ECS Tuning are the ECS Polyurethane Rear Control Arm Bushing Kits for your Volkswagen or Audi.
The new kit offers three major benefits. Primarily, replacing aged and worn bushings is not an easy task for your average DIYer. Removing the old bushings often takes special presses or a sketchy torch to burn out the old rubber. Neither is ideal from a home garage perspective for obvious reasons as presses are expensive and fire is dangerous. Our kit includes new control arms, for the upper, lower, inboard, and outboard locations, with pre-pressed polyurethane bushings for a simple swap that doesn’t require any special equipment. Make it easy on yourself by just exchanging your old, worn, and rusty control arms and bushings with a pre-assembled, shiny, brand-new arm.
The polyurethane bushings installed on our control arms are also an excellent performance modification, which makes this DIY both a maintenance service and suspension upgrade. The polyurethane bushings reduce deflection and offer improved handling characteristics on your VW or Audi. Two birds with one stone and all that.
Lastly, by replacing the arms themselves, your undercarriage will look the way it did when new once more. This means no sanding, priming, and painting your old arms for a clean install, nor do you have to choose between the extra time or just throwing your old arms unrestored back under your car. Keep it clean and classy with brand new arms and pre-pressed polyurethane bushings provided in the kit.
Overall, maintenance on these cars is not difficult or time-consuming, but in more involved cases, you can always find an easier and better way to make your VW or Audi meet your standards for years to come. With our preassembled Rear Control Arm Bushing Kits, you can knock out maintenance and improve your handling all at once with the easiest solution of simple bolt-on upgraded parts swapping rather than the tedious process of pressing bushings in and out, cleaning, sanding, painting, and reinstalling old arms, all for the same capabilities the car had when new.
