    2012 with 61K miles. Shop says it needs control arms, bushings and ball joints. The whole front end is loose. First, what would cause it to need control arms so soon? Also, is it possible that bushings and ball joints would fix the problem? Looking at almost $1,400 for the whole deal. $700...

    I have a howling sound coming from my driveline. Am I correct in assuming that it is the right side CV joint if it get worse when I turn to the left? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Am going to be replacing the front wheel bearing assembly, both sides. Whole assembly, not just new bearings. What do I need to replace the ball joints when doing this? Not sure if it really needs it but we are on country gravel and dirt roads at least 50% of my driving and with this older...

    My GTI has a couple issues lately. First issue is when going over bumps the car feels like it's going to crumble the shocks aren't absorbing the impact or something. And I just replaced them with brand new KYB Gas Shocks. Second problem probably the same issue as the first but when jacking...

    Getting ready to do a front driver side wheel bearing. Should i plan on doing the ball joints too while i have everything apart? Are there parts i should be prepared to replace while i am in there beside the bearing hub?

    I went to have the front end aligned and was told and I saw considerable movement in both front wheels. I was told this was bad front wheel bearings. These bearing were changed about 50k miles ago when they made considerable howling noise. Seems to me these should not be failing so soon also...

    In the last month I have gone through three left outer CV joints. They have also replaced the left inner CV and wheel bearing. After less then 100 km I can hear the CV again. What is causing this?

    Just bought an 85' Cabriolet that had struts, cv shafts, ball joints and alignment all done. It rides and steers like a dream and had three mechanics at work (these are master mechanics) look it over - its in tip top shape. However, when you make a SHARP left turn or come upan incline at a fast...

    Since I have had the car which is coming up to a year, there has been a persistant rattling underneath the front passenger side. This is more noticeable when driving on bumpy roads which to me indicates that something is loose. However, after numerous garage visits of bearings and ball joints...
