Control Arm Kit, Density Line, B5/C5 Audi A4/S4 & A6, B5 Volkswagen Passat with Steel Uprights
Does your Audi or Volkswagen have that "not so fresh" feeling? Does it clunk and clack over driveways and speed bumps? Does it have the steering response of a '59 Chebby?
It's okay... Your undercarriage just needs a little work, and it won't require any cream and you're not the only girl on the block. This is a common problem with B5 Audi A4/S4, B5 Volkswagen Passat, and C5 Audi A6 cars.
Fix it once and for all with a complete Density Line Control Arm Kit, which features all front suspension links and new installation hardware. No, these are not parts for 7 cars, which is how it may appear... Your car really uses this many links to create the sharp handling and buttery smooth ride you're accustomed to. Just make sure they are tight for slop free, fresh handling.
Save a ton of money by buying the complete kit over piecing together parts. This kit exceeds the OE arm quality, as we went to an OE supplier for Audi and had them make arms for us to our specifications. Density Line Control Arm Bushings feature slightly sitffer, higher durometer rubber for crisper handling and longer life. We go direct to the source for an improved product, and by cutting out several middle men, we can offer you a higher quality part at an exceptional savings.
A complete hardware kit with all new nuts and bolts is now included!
Don't be fooled by cheap Chinese Ebay arm kits, our arm kits are the real deal and we stand behind them with a 1-year replacement warranty from the time of purchase*.
NOTE 1: This kit is for later B5 S4's, as well as earlier Audi A6 models with steel uprights. Cars with aluminum uprights need 2 different lower control arms, and that kit is available here. You can easily verify if your car uses this kit if your suspension uprights are made out of steel.
*NOTE 2: To ensure a long life for these control arms, when they are installed, it is IMPERATIVE that the suspension be compressed to static ride height before any suspension pivot bushings are tightened. If this is not done, bushings will tear as the twisting forces on them will be much higher than is intended. If you have any questions about this, please contact us to verify, if this is not done any warranty will be voided.
NOTE about VW Passat: All Passat's with VIN from 000000 - 072000 take part number have steel uprights, all Passat's with VIN from 072001 - end of B5/B5.5 have steel uprights but take aluminum upright style arms, please note when ordering and choose appropriately below. Does not fit C5 Allroad.
I like these control arms. They ride great, and have definitely improved handling. My only complaint is with the stabilizer links not fitting my passat. These links are designed after audi parts, and fit as such. When i brought this to 034's attention, it was made pretty clear they had no interest in remedying the situation. Luckily, i had another car i could use the links in, it wasn't a complete failure.

I installed this kit about a month ago on my b5 wagon. I am very happy with both the quality of the kit and the performance. The installation was the same as all the other control arm installations you've done (the pinch bolt can be problematic) but that is normal and has nothing to do with the arms. They went in like factory control arms, and fit perfectly. The ride is stiffer compared to the stock arms, however the car tracks extremely well on the highway and the turn in is very much improved. I used this kit with s4 tie rod ends which may have something to do with the steering improvement. While ordering I also had to walk outside with the phone to find out if the car had steel or aluminum uprights, and the tech on the phone was knowledgeable, patient and helpful. And they got the order right.

We ordered this kit for a for a co-worker's S4. We both work at an Audi Dealer and I was very susprised at the quality and price of this kit. It's fit and quality is just like OEM. I work with these cars all day, and I would not hesitate to use these parts on my own vehicle. Great parts and service!
