I've also been looking at suspension arms front and rear, amongst other stuff..

Unfortunately, it would appear Lemförder seems to have ceased production of quite a few components / lines on our RS.

Looking at their Technical Catalogue, you will be greeted by a "No longer supplied by manufacturer" message whilst trying to get info on particular components..

https://aftermarket.zf.com/en/aftermark ... r-catalog/#/

I'm pretty certain LEMFÖRDER & BOGE 'were' the original supplier to Audi for control arms, suspension related components.. so not sure who supplies Audi, TPS etc. now for these - if even available to order now?

fwiw, LEMFÖRDER, BOGE, SACHS, TRW and STABILUS are all divisions/business units of ZF Friedrichshafen AG Germany.

So, anything is that group I would think you should generally be fine with..

Let us know how you get on - good luck!

Thanks, i noticed the same yesterday when looking through the Lemforder online catalogue.

Have emailed a few uk suppliers of Lemforder to gauge supply and cost.

Obviosly there is Autodoc, i would just prefer a UK supply. And their prices for these have gone up a lot.

My car needs both bottom "bent" arms and nearside straight arm, I was curious as to where we are with the Lemforder kit, has anyone fitted alternatives.

I've been quote £1100.00 supplied and fitted for the three plus wheel alignment. The parts would be OE

Was looking online to compare prices, but I can't see these part numbers. Is there any way to X Ref the numbers on the quote to the Audi part numbers ?


Cheers guys.
