  1. Good Morning all, Anyone got any thoughts about this?
  2. Hi all, It's been a while, but I have had a chat with the owner of the garage. He's confident that they are fitted correctly after checking them twice. He said the only thing that was different to the many other installations of lowering springs that he has done was the Mountune52 springs. So, in the interest of getting this sorted out as quickly and painlessly as possible, I think I'm going to go the route of different springs. It's a bit of a long shot, but I may speak to Mountune52 afterwards and see if I can send them back for a partial discount of some kind. So, I
  3. Noted! Thanks for the information. I'll bare this in mind if it gets to the point of buying new top mounts. I had a look at the Febi mounts, and they're usually listed as Febi/Bilstein, so I would assume the build quality is good. I haven't had a chance to go through the list yet, but I will be sure to post back on here when I do. I've sent Mountune52 a message too, just to see if they have any other suggestions that I can try in addition.
  4. Thanks for all the great replies. I'll report back when I know more. This is an awesome forum! P.S - I would give rep for the replies, but I assume I cant because I'm a noob!
  5. Cheers for the info! I may do this or go for some ECS ones if the lubricant and other checks dont sort it out. Thanks very much. I'll add this to the check list and figure out a day to sort it out. Yeah, there's mixed reviews on the Febi stuff. Some say it's fine but others not. I think it must be to do with what the Febi parts are paired with.
  6. Ah, that makes sense. I'll add that to the list of things to try. Hopefully if I put some heat/water resistant lube on enough then it'll disappear. Yeah, I'll try the least expensive options first and work upwards from there. I've heard some people use RS3 mounts. I'm on Stage 1 (mountune), so given the torque increase would it make sense to get some of those, or am I asking for more trouble?
  7. I gave the garage a call They replaced the mounts and bearings, but they are Febi parts which I've heard mixed things about. I might ask them to change the top mounts for something different. What do you reckon?
  8. I'll have to double check with the garage. I think I asked and they said OEM ones. I'm fairly certain they said they also changed the bearing, but again, I'll confirm.
  9. I think I've got some KY Jelly spare?! I've got some silicone spray so I'll give it a go. I should think I'm gonna have to jack the car up to get in there, or did you manage to do without?
  10. Thanks for the reply Bobby. What lube did you use?
  11. Hi All, I've been lurking on here for a while. Finally made the jump to the R in October last year from a Mk7 GTI. Didn't take long to starting modifying though! So, I purchased a Mountune52 Sport Spring Kit for my mk7.5 Golf R (34k miles on the clock). They lower the car between 20-30mm. As I don’t have a space to install them myself, I took them to a reputable VAG specialist nearby. They installed the springs as well as new front top mounts. Everything was tightened up and lubricated. It has also gone back to the same garage to check everything was st
