87 5tq bushings
re: instant oversteer due to toe changes
Yep, that's a famous symptom. In fact, from that description I'd even
that your problem lies primarily in the *control arm* bushings rather than
the sub-frame bushings. Collective list wisdom?
Wherever you get the parts, make sure they are Audi OEM parts. I've seen
(both rubber and urethane) fail within 6-18 months. Note that even a
source (and Audi dealer) on this list (who will remain nameless) got my
wrong. [[Uh, *name here*, are there really *6* bushings on each sub-frame,
the extra two hold the rear diff?]]
The job is involved, but not complex. Need to press out most of the
bushings, which I won't
attempt. Need to re-allign everything, for the most part.
My advice? If you plan to keep the car, get at it, and do them all at
once. No need to spend
another $200 plus $100 allignment, to repalce the final $50 worth of parts
save on today.
