Verkline Adjustable Tubular Front Wishbones with Race Ball Joints - MK5 / MK6 PlatformWhen using the car on the track the cornering forces are bending the rubber in the wishbones. Thus changing the desired geometry of the car. This can lead to slower track times and ineffective tire usage. For that reason Verkline have come up with uniball wishbones. The race wishbones use metal to metal uniball just like used in Porsche RS line (GT2RS, GT3RS). Tested intensively on the Verkline Track Audi TTRS. Most of the cars used on track are lowered compared to stock. Lowering the car has the undesirable effect of moving the chassis lower than the balljoint and excessive lowering results in the situation where the wishbone is pointing upwards at the wheel end. This means you need more steering lock when cornering, the car is sluggish to respond and doesn’t feel as communicative. More pictures with additional information bellow. These use the same T45 tubing as in WRC cars, the wishbones provide increased stiffness and extra adjustment. All factory parts bolt up to this unit, no other modifications are necessary.
This Kit Consists Of:– two (pair) front tubular wishbones with all hardware for install
– two (pair) CNC billet 7075 aluminium wishbone arm mounts
– set of spacers to reposition the steering rack and front anit-roll bar. Both 20 mm up
– four rubber caps for uniball protection.
T45 is a very unique seamless carbon based steel tube that has been used in many applications in different industries. It is stronger than Co-Mo 4130 tubing that also used in motorsport. It is widely used in the aerospace sector in equipment such as pilot’s seats and crew’s seats due to the materials ability to withstand high G forces without snapping or splitting. This material is a Carbon Manganese based and conforms to the full Aerospace Specification laid down by British Standards.
It is necessary to remove rubber o-ring (1K0423187) in order to fit steering rack in new higher positon. Sold only for off road, race track and racing applications. If the buyer wants to use the parts elsewhere it is up to them to arrange appropriate documents.
This Kit will fit the following Vehicles:
To replace the following calipers:
This version can only be used with our front tubular subframes.
