    ok so I changed front and rear lower controls arms on Front passenger side. Car was tighter but there was a clunk that I could not find. After a while I have determined that when I removed the Front rear lower control arm the tapered bushing must have gone with it . So now I have to replace...

    Does anyone know where to buy the driveshaft center bearing/bushing. I called downingtown vw, they don't have it, but told me a new driveshaft is around $1400. I tried 034 motorsports, they do not carry the item but to check back. I really need to find this. There is a horrible thumping noise...

    Okay, I am assuming this thing is the cruise servo. It's a metal can mounted below the intake with a rod that goes to the throttle body. There is a bushing that clips into the top of this can, either to guide it or hold it in place. Anyone know of any alternates for these things?

    Time for new outer tie rod ends! Pot holes and frost heaves have destroyed my steering. I started doing some reading after finding different versions of the tie rod ends, mine are very loose, but more due to the "dampening bushing) blowing apart than the end pin/socket it self. I find this a...

    Found the source of my right front creaking noises! Now, are they hard to replace yourself or should I just have the dealer/independent shop do it? Anyone know the price this could run me?

    I have searched this forum and others on torquing down bushing bolts. They have to be at ride height before tightening them up, correct? Does this include the sway bar link? I watched the video from FKAutoworks and he used a jack under the edge of a ball joint to load the suspension. This is...

    My clutch pedal has been exhibiting increasing side-to-side slack (not much, but noticeable). After some research, I got worried and dropped the lower dash [link: see dash instructions], and I traced the slack to the main pivot joint of the clutch pedal. After some further research, I found...

I know the manual has the needle bushing, but I am trying to see if the auto crank has a pilot bushing in it or if it is just machined to accept the alighnment pin on the torque converter? By the way we are talking the...

    I have a 2000 Passat front wheel drive with a creaking or groaning sound coming from the right rear wheel area. I can make the sound by gently pushing the right rear of the car up and down. The sound is exactly the same sound that a front control arm made before I had it replaced. The car did...

    I have an old truck ('84 Isuzu P'up diesel), thing runs great, daily driver, yadda yadda badda boom badda bing. Virtually all the front suspension bushing boots are cracked, although I've taken a few joints apart and the metal doesn't look too worse for the wear (25 yrs/250+kmi). Anyway, I'd...
