I need to replace both my upper and lower control arms...

It's a 2001 QM1.8T avant.

I've seen prices for this kit range between 700-900 bucks (I know those are for the Heavy Duty), but found it on Amazon (Non HD) for about 485! Could anyone confirm if this is the right kit for me? Thanks! Looking to get the outer tie rod ends, and sway bar end links as well... I think this is the right kit but could use some confirmation...Thanks!

Get the FCP control arm kit. There is a group buy for the entire kit including upgraded tie rods for $235 shipped. Lots of people have it and love it.

Or get the Febi Kit from Purems.

I am running those for the last 25k miles and zero problems. Runs and handles like stock. Also, they were German made.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check them out.

+1 for the FCP. Quality customer service, too. I was kind've confused that they sent me the upgraded TREs, then the stockers, and they answered (rather quickly) that they sent them together.

Now, installation on the other hand..Have fun with getting those bolts out and giving yourself a hernia.

Really, get tons of PB Blaster. Like, 2-3 cans, and spray away.

^Wow, ECS came to play. I didn't realize they had a kit that came close to FCP's price point. Interesting.

I do have to hand it to FCP though. They ship it for free and stand behind it with a lifetime warranty. It's definitely good to have some competition, though.

To the OP - We have a control arm group buy on here which we've been selling since January of 2010. There are 21 pages of real, honest, Audizine user reviews and we have had great success with them, selling hundreds (if not a thousand) of kits. I have included the link below and you can also find other kits such as Meyle HD on www.fcpeuro.com. If you have any additional questions or would like to receive the best pricing, please feel free to contact me directly at 877-634-0063 ext. 207. [up]
