After so many years of VW ownership and so many forums and questions, you finally start retaining it. Lol. That is what's nice about our forum most of us senior members that are left we all have our area of expertise. Shawng has his own shop, and is an admin, been here a long time. OnOff and N4S are master modders. Enigma was a great modder but left when Photobucket held our pict for ransom. Few other greats have left as well. Me I'm just the tinkerer who has too much time on their hands, with big dreams and shallow pockets. I'd have a ton more mods on my Tiguan but I've been off work for 8 years now, so I spend my evenings trying to help where I can.

Mounting bracket to body   Use new bolts 70 Nm + 180°

Ball joint to aluminum control arm:   Use new nuts 60 Nm

Ball joint to sheet steel control arm   Use new nuts 100 Nm

Control arm to subframe   Use a new bolt   Tighten screws in curb weight position 70 Nm + 180°

For anyone interested, attached is readout for wheel alignment performed yesterday by VW garage. Looks like it was well worth having done.

 

I was told that the 441mm right front axle ride height is not a concern although the 4mm difference from the left axle is strange.

If you look back to page 3 of this thread you’ll see I fitted Lemforder bushes. It’s not hard to read the thread, then you won’t need to ask a question where your answer already exists.

Lemforder are OEM quality so won’t cause any issues. They were identical to the originals they replaced.

Any of the name brands will be fine and behave comparable to OE. One might be listed a a premium or heavy duty part, but should still behave like OE. They might last longer, time will tell. NEVER use 'white box' or off brand parts, and you should be just fine.
