    Sorry for the delayed response. I installed these last week, an absolute must is a ball joint separator (and of course a torque wrench), specifically for the lower rear control arm on the knuckle side. Had to use that with pressure and slam with a hammer (shocking on tool under pressure) to separate from the knuckle. It took ALOT of pressure, I don't think they would release with just hammering the knuckle to shock it out. May be able to get away with a pickle fork as well, however something is definitely required.

    Another note I'd mention for future install instructions is to be wary of the pinch bolt on the upper portion of knuckle on higher mileage cars/east coast cars as they can get seized in pretty good and require a torch (one side on my car needed to be heated pretty intensely).

    What's the difference between the three different types of sets I'm seeing online? Are the two adjustable sets for lowered cars only?

    The main difference is the ball joint size so you'll need to verify the buiid date to get the correct kit.

    Please Note: For B8/B8.5 models, select Early (M12 - Build Dates up to Nov 2, 2009) or Late (M14 - Build Dates from Nov 3, 2009) above to ensure that the correct kit is supplied for your vehicle. For C7/C7.5 A6/A7, select Early (M12 - Build Dates up to July 1, 2013) or Late (M14 - Build Dates from July 2, 2013). For C7 S6/S7 vehicles, select Late (M14). New Outer Tie Rod Ends are sold separately.

    Did you know that BMP TUNING has 034Motorsport products in stock ready to ship?

    Make sure to check them out!

    034MOTORSPORT AND BMP TUNING ESTABLISH AN OFFICIAL PARTNERSHIP IN THE CENTRAL-SOUTHERN USA







    Press Release

    August 30th, 2017

    Carrollton, TX

    Today, 034Motorsport is fortifying its brand presence in the Central-Southern USA by announcing a regional distributor partnership with BMP Tuning.

    This exciting partnership will enable existing dealers to get inventory faster, and allow 034Motorsport to be represented to more new shops in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. BMP Tuning will be the exclusive wholesale distributor in these six states.

This made the decision to partner with BMP Tuning very easy for all of us here at 034Motorsport,” States Troy Sicotte, Global Director of Sales for 034Motorsport. “BMP Tuning has committed to being in stock, and will be instrumental to getting our parts to existing dealers quickly, while expanding the dealer network in states where we have limited penetration.”


    “Our goals are to help grow brands by representing them in a positive light. I treat each and every brand BMP Tuning represents as if it was my own company. By doing that on all levels, we are able to represent manufacturers in a way that benefits them more so than just slinging parts.

    Sighhhh... any suggestions? Already have spc adjustable upper control arms, but nailed a pothole and feel like I should replace them. Need something that allows camber adjustments but can hold up to these Northeast winters

    Did you bend an arm or something? Why do you think they need replacing?

    I have the Track Spec 034 arms and so far they are great. However I really put very little mileage on mine.

    They actually went up through the covered port in the engine bay, put some nice gouges in the passenger side control arms, actually dented the frame of the car around those ports (not really sure what they're called, windows? Whatever lol), the guy who did my alignment last time said one was froze and to replace them before next alignment, and one of the boots is destroyed on the driver's side. They're only a year old :(

    That must have been a pretty nasty pothole. The only issues I have with the 034 arms are:
    1) The allen key bolt that hold the arm to the pin in the spindle is weak and I stripped it. I replaced with a hex head bolt and a couple washers...much better.
    2) The rubber boots that protect the heim joints...I tore the first one trying to get it on so I just left them all off.
    3) Less of an issue but a note when installing, the "washer" that forms the top of the ball of the heim joint might not seat properly if you dial in lots of camber so you have to lower the car down some to compress the suspension before final tightening or you might damage the lip of the "washer"

    Once winter is over I will be interested to see if the arms are corroded.

    well you just want to avoid pillowbearing and stick to bushing/rubber. Thats what I was told. Plenty of ppl have reported problem with sway link going bad in winter.

    I am wondering if there are any good diy’s for lower front control arms. I have mine all apart and I am having trouble getting the lower curved arm back in. I cannot get the angle right no matter how I move thIngs. It came apart fine but now I can’t seem to ge the old ones back in either. If I insert the ball joint end first the bushing is at an odd angle and I can’t get it into the bracket. If I insert the bushing end first I can’t get the ball joint into the the hole as it doesn’t flex far enough- I need some help please..

    If I had to guess I’d say the hub is shifted out of position. Try pushing it towards the back of the vehicle and see if that helps?

    Since installing these, I got the creaking noise that some people report just like this thread ; https://www.audizine.com/forum/showt...ile-turning-it

    Is the street version suppose to creak ? do the bushing needs to break-in ? does that mean the installer did a bad install ? loose bolt ? etc.

    Please advice.
