Hi

Novice query---

I was advised a while ago that my rear lower arm bushes were a bit worn, not a major problem at the time.

Then again (although this time VW dealer) said the rear bump stops were worn.

Are they the same thing? Or do I have more than one thing wearing?

Normally don't trust the dealers but the price difference was enough for me to think twice and question it.

Thanks
Al

I've always referred to the bump stop as being the rubber buffer within the shock to stop the 2 faces coming together on full compression travel.

Yeah me too but on the MK4 the bump stop is on the spring platform, hence saying it wasn't on the shock. My bad for not realising the OP was talking about a MK5.
