Lower wishbone differences

Post by Turbocod »

Just wondering if the front lower wishbone is different on different models, a bit like mk3 golf had widetrack on the gti.
Does the gti or ibiza cupra, fabia vrs have anything different apart from springs compared to the less sporty ones?

It is a long time since I bumped into this, but I think that the either both sides are slightly different to allow for shorter road springs, and the LHS is certainly different to accommodate the 6 speed gearbox.

Somebody somewhere did some work on using the lower swivels on the wrong sides to change the suspension geometry and also maybe using TT hub carriers?

Managed to get an online etka type thing working, looks like they are same on all types, e to gti, shocks may differ to match spring lengths, not checked actual console mount (not bush) to see if 6 speed is an oddity.
So only real one upgrade is cupra bushes in the back of them, and the spring and shocks then.
