4. :D

It's a brand of carb cleaner made by Berkebile. Really good stuff, but it's expensive as frig.

Good choice. I'm not really convinced the TT mounts are any heavier duty than GTI or Golf R mounts, but they'll work just fine.

All the parts in the kit are what need to be replaced, but you should see if they can swap in good quality mounts, either OEM or Febi. Everything else is legit.

I'm on 18x8.5 ET38 with 235s and VWR springs. I had to do the fender screw mod, but after that it's fine. You should be ok with ET47.

I was forced to get ET38 to clear my brakes. They rubbed over large bumps at first with my VWR springs, but the fender screw mod took care of that.

my wild guess: your fluid is a little low, and the cornering force sloshed it enough to trip the light.

I'm running Whiteline front and Neuspeed rear endlinks. Both are working silently, and the exposed bearings on the Neuspeeds still look new after 50k miles.

Wasn't it established a while back that DG springs are Eibach Pro-Kit painted blue?

But yeah, either Bilstein or Koni yellow for shocks.

Yeah you've gotta keep them greased. I use the Energy Suspension bushing lube, but any good silicone-based lube will work.

They're 80A. OEM rubber bushings generally aren't any harder than 60A, but if I remember right they're 45A.

Yeah it took me a while to find them actually in stock, too. I ended up getting the fronts from FCP, I must have snagged ECS's last in-stock rear, and the other rear came from amazon.

I get a lot more road noise with poly control arm bushings, but the bushings themselves don't squeak. I just want a little more compliance in my daily driver.

It helps to get the part number from Bilstein and search with that instead of by application. FCP Euro has them in stock, and they're available on amazon as well.

I've been lucky, I've never needed to replace mine. I did it at 80k miles just as a matter of course, but it still looked new. The replacement is still good 45k later.
