As title. Anyone used these or can recommend any? Wazzer recommended some part numbers for Polo 6N top mounts but I aint so sure.. I'd like something tried, tested and made for the MK4 Golf.

Been looking @ the supersport ones for about 60 quid, polyurethane, lower the front a further 10mm (which would be ideal!)

Any opinions/reviews for those who've used 'em?

1) Do they drop 10mm as stated.
2) Is the ride any different?
3) Would I need some adjustable ARB drop links as I'm down 40-45mm as it is at the front.

Cheers  :evil:

This has been done by a few guys over on UKMKIVs.

Hamidi on his 2.slow to 1.8t Conversion n Air Ride.
Olly(Olthalb) on his slammed to buggery R32
and a few others.

don't seem to be any complaints as of yet.

this is Hamidi's Post. Yes, he is bordering insane(ly low)

right, ive posted this up on my build thread, but i'll do it here too

shorter top mounts/cups compared to standard golf




BEFORE



AFTER



Now, ive only had this in for 3days, no problems so far
i thought i'd say this first before anyone starts ranting about how its fooked up their car.

im not too sure if this has been done before with a straight swap top mount. it HAS been done with cutting the standard top mounts shorter and there's already info up on that (also refer to doey's build thread)

credit where its due
thanks to Olly aka olethalb for spotting this  you crazy ass.


Now, the Part Numbers:

two x   6N0412319 = £9.10
two x   6N0412331A = £15.54
+VAT
~£28.96


THEY ARE OFF A VW 6N POLO

I'm certain I read that thread, and saw something about metal on metal from one guy running the polo top mounts which didn't sound ideal.. lol.

Rich, speaketh up :D We can discuss ideas aslong as it's not single mass flywheel conversions haha I think everything else is relatively safe :)

Why not  :smiley:

I am not keen on the idea, to me Polo ones are designed to work with a lower kurb weight so I cannot see them lasting long on a Golf.

I guess they don't use the car much, 5mins on the roads around here and they would be knackered.

Also so people can comment, 10mm should level this out nicely do we think?




It's on a Jamex kit shocks and springs, about 45mm, but custom rear springs which are probably around a 50mm drop... so hoping 10mm at the front will just close the front arch gap a little better :)
