How to convert the Audi Golf R32 spindle and/or control arms

difficulty: 3/5

The Audi TT/VW used suspension pieces than the Beetle (A4) TDI. DIY shows how to convert to the Audi TT In my opinion, if you just want big for your TDI, stay the 1.8T/VR6 spindle unless you a 2.0 or TDI, in which case you to convert to something anyways. it#039;s not necessary to use the TT/R32 to use the TT/R32 brakes, the brakes bolt onto the 1.8T/VR6 but not your TDI or 2.0 spindle. There are two of conversion: spindle and ball alone OR spindle, lower arm (LCA), front sway and ball joints. Below is a of a TT spindle vs. the 1.8T/VR6 spindle.

The advantage of using the more TT/R32 conversion is adjustable on the TT lower control arm (LCA). You use a camber plate or a LCA mod kit if you just adjustable camber. The Audi TT LCA has and stiffer front and rear bushings which will handling. (The large will also fit in all mk3/mk4 Using the TT spindle alone not give you adjustable camber, you to convert to the TT LCA because that#039;s camber is adjusted from. other differences: TT/R32 LCA are metal vs. the stamped steel of the The solid part is stronger but also heavier (about 5 lbs each). Pictured below is an TT LCA and a closeup with measurements the elongated holes for adjustable Also note the nub on the LCA. You may this nub for the sway bar links, don#039;t have the nub. heard that 2001 arms have this nub but have said they The problem is that non-nub have the same part as arms with the nub. on this below.

Below is what the TDI A4 body arm looks like. It#039;s steel and the rear bushing has vs. the solid bushing above to more compliance.

dealership price: spindles for the R32 for each. $574 before

Impex has the parts (linked for $230 and $246 = $475 w/o

Also note that are 2 versions of the Audi TT LCA, below. The early style has bushings and is only available the new style has larger bushings are direct fit into all mk3 and mk4 TDI). make sure your LCA has the for drilling a spot to attach the bar endlinks (more details


The parts list has a few combinations that you can mix-match, this page and then out what you need. Your two are: spindle/ball joint OR spindle/ball joint/LCA/sway bar conversion. To use the spindle, modify the TT ball yourself to fit the existing TDI lower arms, the rest is direct on. You also have to turn the tie rod upside down. You do not get adjustable To use the TT/R32 spindle/ball joint/LCA/front bar, you have to modify the control arms to accept the TDI bar end links, the rest is bolt on. You do get camber. Original and helpful threads can be viewed here: ,,, summarized and organized all the most info from many posts on this page and the missing pictures. Many to tyrolsport for permission to use the pics!

Also note that the TT had two versions of the LCA, there was a to make the TT more stable and it more understeer. The specific consisted of new front lower arms with larger, offset front bushings, as as modified front and rear with stiffer compression and rebound dampening to reduce transfer from rear to when braking. The front bar was increased in size from to 20 mm, while the rear was reduced 1mm in from 15mm to 14mm. The in handling was slower steering increased understeer, and reduced oversteer.

Other than the tie rod end upside down to fit the spindle, the other modification you need is to the Audi TT ball joint to fit the LCA. It#039;s not possible to out the LCA for adjustable camber because stamped steel and doing so weaken it. The Audi TT LCA is cast so it can the elongated holes for adjustable The spindle also has a better curve.

The biggest obstacle is a place to mount your sway bar end links if you choose to the stock front swaybar. Audi TT/R32 LCA have the nub for out a spot to mount your sway bar end links, some do If you do not want to keep the stock swaybar or your TT/R32 LCA do not the nubs. you have to get a TT front TT front swaybar endlinks, and new TT The 1.8T/VR6 sway bar goes the axle, the TT/R32 swaybar is likely to have no clearance since it goes under the

Remember, if your LCA does not the nub, you must get TT/R32 to connect the swaybar endlinks. If it you can drill the LCA out and reuse the stock endlinks. This is pictured and in a picture above.

Also note that are several different bearings for the TT spindle. The bearings have part numbers, and cars came with an 18 inch package from the factory have the appropriate bearing for the If getting TT spindles, your bet is to find R32 spindles if you don#039;t to replace wheel bearings or the axle bolt from the spindle.

Below is a modified TT LCA with drilled out hole. the nub which the swaybar endlink is to.

Procedure and pics below Richard55 at

Put the LCA in a vice as we are to drill it out to 10mmx1.5 pitch. punch the LCA in the center of the knub.

you drill figure out how deep you to go by installing the bolt into the old LCA the sway bar bracket in place. use tape to mark the depth. You need to go a bit deeper to get it to fit correctly. If you go deep enough the bolt not bottom out on the bracket and it will be but don#039;t worry too much you can trim the bolt some to I had to lol.

Start small, keeping it and work your way up to the tapping bit

Again mark the depth you to go on the tapping drill. Go for it, just it straight and not wobbleing side to

Tap the hole, install the LCA on the car and install the bar. Done Audi TT LCA now with the NB sway bar.
