      This mounts to the bottom of the a-arm sandwiched under the ball joint nuts. (ball joint on top of a-arm, bracket underneath).

      Unfortunately, the Mk4 R32/Mk1 TT arms are not aluminum. They are actually cast iron. Mk2 TT are aluminum but the rear bushing mounts totally different.

      Being that these arms are cast iron, the rear spherical bearings need to be turned down a bit more. The cast iron arm doesn't give a c-hair, so fit is critical.

      With the combination of arm and camber/caster plates I should have quite a bit more of caster to take advantage of.

      False Advertising! That looks too shiny for aluminium.

      Oops, it'd be nice if they were aluminum.

      Him of all people should know, these things take time.

      The majority of the time it takes is finding services that you trust as well as doing what they say they are going to do in the time they say they are going to do it.

      I have zero patience these days for crappy service or lack luster response. It's one thing to be busy, I understand that. But if that's the case, let me know so I can plan accordingly. So I am trying not to rush things or expect someone else to as it never seems to end in my favor.

      Would be cool to be done in time for summer, but it's not looking good.

      In the spirit of constant change...meaning "changing my mind". I added this to the collection today.









      Still going to BV my original head since I have the parts now. I'll decide what to run later.

      I was going to swap the OE shift box today for a Neuspeed box I have had. But with only 30k miles on the original box and cables I decided to swap just what I needed to.
