Excellent product
Very fast shipping. All the parts fit exactly as described and I will buy from 1A again and recommend to my friends.
March 15, 2017
I have had this kit on my 2001 Golf for over 8 months now. My car has been lowered and I drive on horrible NH roads every day. I have my car on the lift pretty often (it is a VW) and the front end is just as tight as the day I put these in. If you are thinking about this kit or a similar kit from 1A Auto, get it. You will not be disappointed and you will have some cash left over to buy some other pieces that your VW probably needs.

Do I need to buy the control arm bushings as well as this product?
Katie A September 15, 2015
No, this kit came with everything needed for the control arm. I installed this kit on my car. Just a little extra note on this install: The only issue I came across was not the parts, but with the car... All YouTube DIY videos show the installation on the passenger side... Well, that is because the driver side SUCKS. The ATF pan is in the way of the front bolt on the arm. I had to remove three subframe bolts and jack the engine up to provide enough clearance to remove the bolt to take the old arm off and reinstall the new one. P.S. The passenger side is a breeze.
Kimberly S September 15, 2015
No you dont need too everything you need comes with the set
Jeffrey M September 15, 2015
You should not have to. The control arms I got had the bushings already installed as is shown in the photo. Good luck!
Paul M September 15, 2015
No. They are included and pressed in, ready to go on the control arms.
Frank F September 15, 2015
Hello Katie if you are thinking to remplace your struts and shocks you can get A arms set is more better and the price is perfect and easy to instal.l
Jaime J September 15, 2015
This product has the bushing already pressed inside of the control arm.
Darlyn S September 16, 2015
What are the grease packets for that came with the ball joints?
Kolar C January 18, 2017
Hello Kolar. Thank you for your inquiry, but these ball joints are prepacked with grease, and are sealed units. These do not have grease fittings, so they are not serviceable.
Tim K January 19, 2017
Are the control arms the same style for driver and passenger side?
Mike M July 3, 2017
Yes theyre the same you just attach the end attaching bolt thingy to match whichever side. Piece of cake to do.
Mark F July 3, 2017
Yes, exactly the same. The way you install the ball joints is the only difference, Mike. Hope that helps.
James C July 3, 2017
Yes they are the same... its a easy simple fix. That will save you a lot of money!
