Suspension arms/wishbones

Post by UserError » Thu Nov 24, 2016 2:39 pm

Hi, new to this world as we've taken a gamble and a learning exercise for my son, on a Polo that had a disagreement with a deer: the n/s front wheel has been knocked back and some other cosmetic damage.

Taking measurements from a central point to both sides of the subframe, the subframe appears to be in the right place.
We've just got the arm off & it is not obviously mangled. I noticed that the o/s arm looks very similar. A quick check on Eurocarparts suggests that the part is not handed/one arm does L & R - is that correct? If so we could do a check by swapping them over presumably.
Are there any measurements available anywhere?
Any other nuggets of information in this area would also be appreciated.
Many thanks.

Correct the wishbones are not sided. Only the tie rod ends and hubs are
