hi,
yesterday i changed the bearings at the top of the struts, the difference in the drive is amazing. the both bearing were damaged and as soon as i took the mounting up they spelt the balls on the ground. new ones in and all the shaking and instability in the front is gone.
pay attention guys!
:driving:

not only bearings, but the mountigs as well as they tend to wear so to say, the new ones were approx 3-4 mm higher ie reducing the springs span and conseqeuntly lowering the arch to the tyres not significantly but is something anyway
on other hand i managed to change the arb bushes. in another post was discussed that the arb was moving along. TG was rigth. the arb once is clamped should not move at all. the new bushes have to come with the brackets. it takes a while to cope with the rusted bolts and undoing the subframe in order to reach them but is money and time well worth believe me
and very smooth and soft :driving: again at last
