      -A2 manual steering rack(keeping mark 2 steering column)
      -A2 tie rods and a arms
      -Rado G60 hubs and axles

      Facepalm because the answer is on the first page. Application specific.... I don't know about the g60 stubs

      thanks. I want to run 4 lug vr and that is what a local said to run. I just want to know if running the manual rack will work with the g60 hubs

      If you are keeping all mk2 (mk2 wide track) and not plus VR setup, everything you mentioned will work.

      The rack + hubs should be easily mated worst case scenario is change tie rod ends?

      4 lug vr6 FTW

      Thanks a lot. Yes I think a 4 lug vr will be good. A buddy does have a O2M though which I think would be awesome for freeway trips but than I would have to completely scrap what i have.

      Does anybody know of anywhere that sells rebuild kits for g60 calipers?

      Because a passat*** k frame and stance are wider.

      Suspension is best served from an mk3 Jetta/gti or staying mk2 OEM.

      My car keeps ruining front right wheel bearings. I have done all the work to Bentley Specs, Used top quality parts.
      The engine/trans subframe...everything is Corrado Vr.
      I cut the rear motor mount down 3/4 of an inch to level out the engine. I'm starting to suspect the "new relationship" (or distance) between the axel flange, driveshaft and spindle. Cutting the mount down effectively reduces the distance between the axle flange and spindle.
      The car has Apex sport springs and is by no means slammed. It migh have 1.25 inch drop
      The bearing is Immediately bad - as in 1st mile driven.
      I started having this problem shortly after replacing the motor mounts .
      Any thoughts?

      Did you start with the OE mount with no problems and then switched to a cut mount and you started having problems?

      There's been controversy about cutting the mount. From the people I've talked to that have done a bunch of these swaps and judging from my personal swap. I didnt cut the mount. I did however swap them with the BFI .5 mounts. No issues with bearings at all. I'm using all mk3 stuff for my swap.

      It had a O.E mount that I cut because hood clearance issue. I pulled the motor this spring and when it was out I also went with BFI.5's that I cut.
      Im stumped. Wheel bearings are not hard. Ive done them before on othere cars with no problems.
      The axel is 20 years old, maybe its not telescoping properly. Resulting in the bearing and hub not being compressed enough when tightening the hub nut.
      I had the passender axel off the trans flange today and the grease was pastey. And the inner boot is staring to split. The inner CV was "locked". I had to twist it with channel locks to get it to telescope (now ithe action is smooth) to the flange to re-bolt it up.

      IDK im grasping at straws now

      New axles from NAPA ate under $100. Wouldn't hurt to scoop up some new ones. Plus you get some $$ back for the cores. I'd imagine you would get some type of vibration if the CVs are not working proper.
