What did you do to your MK6 today?

If you don’t want to go poly and would prefer to go with solid rubber TTRS bushings, you could go with BFI. I love mine.

Yes and it sucked for a few reasons. The car is not comfortable at all to drive on the street, especially for hours at a time. I've had to keep it street legal and will now be able to put a cage in it. And I've been limited to using dot tires because I can't fit another set of wheels in the car, now I can run slicks 😈

So my fake printout alignment was "good enough" for the "tech" but my steering wheel is not perfect enough, I've heard some say the subframe might need adjusting? Could a torn control arm bush throw off the toe?🤭

Your toe is most likely fine, just adjust the tie rod ends to straighten the wheel. If you count the rotations and do the same on both side tie rod ends your alignment won't get messed up.

Figured that when I replaced the links before the alignment but it was still off. Didn't go with OEM tho.🤔

Speaking of bushings does anyone know which SuperPro bushing would fit the apr pendulum mount. I know @HYDE161 replaced the ones that came with the mount originally.

I have the APR pendulum and I don't understand the question.... where would you place a bushing?

Maybe he was mistaking the APR unit for a different one. Like I have a spulen one and it has a poly bushing



but that APR one doesnt look like it uses a bushing unless its some kind of cube bushing in that hinge area?

From my understanding the bushing is pressed in where the bolt connects the 2 pieces . The part I highlighted in the picture.
It's supposed to reduce nvh that the spherical pendulums add.

I have the spulen one currently , it's good for now but I feel like apr one would be better long term.
