    Default 205 GTI Front ARB

    During investigation of the turning problem I am currently having with my 205, I have noticed that the ARB (standard) how would I go about it? is touching the Lower Control Arm on the right hand side. I have taken measurements from the centre of the bottom of the ball joint to the centre of the sway bare hole ( where the drop link attaches) and have noticed the following. RHS 175 mm LHS 150 mm another Car I have here is 160mm and 150 mm respectively.

    I was wondering what are the measurements on other GTI out there.

    Also if I wanted to correct the problem how would I go about it. Comments please

    It should be centred by a knob on the bar, which matches the centre of the the LH body mount bush, from memory.

    Yes, you need to have orange and blue bushes and fitted to the correct sides, so the knob on the bar fits inside the bush with an expanded area.

    Have a look inside the bushes you may have a locating groove in both, otherwise grind or cut one in. (I did).

    The blue one on the LHS did have a groove but too far to the right instead of centre. I have replace both with a new set. ARB is now located more centrally. Thanks for all your comments
