    Hi, I'm new and looking for a bit of help. I hit a kerb last night in the snow and my NSF wheel is now off centre in the wheel arch, I've taken the wheel off and had a look and I can see the wishbone is bent but everything else looks ok. Has any one changed a wishbone? any tips?
    It looks fairly straight forward but don't want to get into it and find out that I need a special bush pressing tool from Audi or some such random special tool. Any help is really appriciated. Thanks

    Job done now, but thanks for the help anyway.
    I guess this site is more about chrome wheels and loud stereos!

    Hi, I changed the wishbone which was fairly straight forward - but also needed a lower ball joint. It seems ok at the moment but I think it could really do with a new wheel bearing.
