I got the Tyrol dead-set subframe collra fitted by VW dealership, but I still get the clunks! I have a feeling they didn't torque the bolts correctly, or, the rest of the bolt apart from the ARP bolts needs replacing also .
I know this has been discussed to death before, but I need help from those who knows, as I just want to make sure if the information I gathered is correct:
Bolt on location 1,2,5, and 6, by VW manual are torque to yield bolt and requires changing if loosened? And its torque spec is 52lb/ft + 1/4 turn?
I understand the Tyrol just need 52lb/ft torque without the turn.
What I saw during the install was, the VW mech didn't add the extra 1/4 turn for all of the 6 bolts and he didn't adjust his torque wrench either for all 6 bolts, which means they're all on the same torque value. I will come back to my VW dealership this weekend and get them to re-do the bolts, but I need someone's help here to confirm what needs to be done with bolt 1,2,5 and 6.
Or maybe I should just replace every single bolt requires to be loosened for swaybar installation (minus the ARP bolt of course)?
