Hi

Ive got a 2006 golf mk5 1.9 tdi and just recently,when driving even at low sppeds (10mph Even) the whole car wobbles and vibrates to high heavens! dont get me worng,loving the massage but I dont think it should be happening!

anyway I went to dealers a couple of months agofor my cd player code as it was locked and they did a free 29 point check,(and free wash and vacuum!) and what they found was my console bushes were split and tie rod had excessive bushes split.

now could this be the cause and if not then where do i look.

and one more thing,the steering wheel has no wobble,vibration at all,none.

thanks

i cant hear any knocking?

but it can cause a massive amount of wobbling even at low speeds?

also any idea where to get the tie rod and console bushes from cheap?

ive had a quote for the console bushes at £235 and the tie rod ends for £202,thats from Awesome for parts and labour.

sound about right?

and i do like getting my hand dirty,how hard is it to do?

anyone know of garages in the northwest where they dont charge a fortune to fit these? and is it cheaper to buy the whole arm rather than just the bushes?
