Haven't even been able to find a shop that even carries them, so you should be good for a week or so

I do believe we had to make a few modifications to get everything to work so I'm not sure it will just bolt up just yet.

Over on the mk5 boards we've all discussed putting in the TT mk2 spindles, I believe someone ordered them sorta by mistake and said the tie rods from the GTI weren't compatible. Will be curious to know how you mated them up. It looks like you also installed the TT tie rods? The control arms look nice and level!

To make the TT/TTRS hubs work you need also TT/TTRS track roads (are longer than GTI/R ones). Also the TT/TTRS lower arms + ball joints are a straight swap. Tested on my car.

Good luck with this project guys.

I have the TT arms installed now - which was a great upgrade with the additional camber. So you need the complete TT track rods, apparently they attach to the GTI steering rack OK? The fear has been that you'd also need the TT rack, then the TT steering shaft then...

Arin, please let us know how you got the TT spindles to work with the (presumably) GTI steering rack. Do the TT tie rods work?

Also, any shots of the control arm angle with the stock spindles?

Thanks!

Many guys from UK with GTI spindles and TT lower arms got 2.4 negative camber, but after installing the TT spindles they could not pass 1.5 negative camber, only with extra camber plates
