Tired of stock Mk4 Chassis strut bushings collapsing and deflecting? We have the solution for you.
We are VERY excited to be announcing the release of our 034Motorsport Track Density Strut mounts for the Mk4 VW
We've been testing these mounts for some time to ensure they are reliable and meet the criterion for the intended use - results so far are very exciting!
WHAT THEY ARE: A new line of rubber strut mounts made FOR us by OE suppliers to OUR specifications.
TRACKDENSITY Mounts are solid rubber mounts, but manufactured from 85 durometer rubber. At approximately 90% stiffer than stock, these are solid for all practical purposes and result in minimal deflection in the suspension. NVH tansfer into the cabin is slightly increased but not horrible, and in return you get a completely locked down strut mount with NO slop or deflection. These are perfect for the street/track enthusiast who enjoys precise, slop-free handling.
NOTE, THIS IS NOT AN OEM MOUNT, AND ARE NOT AVAILABLE FROM ANY OTHER SOURCE - These are built by an OE supplier to 034Motorsport specifications.
Mounts will fit all VW and Audi Mk4 Chassis cars such as the Jetta, Golf, TT and many european Seat and Skoda models as well.
I *didn't* buy a new pair of strut mount bushings when I installed my H&R Cup Kit. Big mistake, of course, because I ended up having to do the job twice :/ Either way, that was my chance to upgrade from the stock bushings, so I decided to give these a try. I was a bit wary of how much engine feedback would be transmitted thru them given this is largely a road car, but I was amazed and delighted to find that I didn't notice *any* additional harshness/vibration over the stock ones! What I *did* notice, was the improvement in handling, which I can only describe as 'cleaner'! Any future MK4 work I do, I'm going to upgrade to these as a matter of course. Top-notch product :)

Had these installed on my 2004 VW R32 over the weekend. I paired them with the ECS Tuning Urth. Control arm bushings. I noticed a big difference in handling, it feels so much smoother while cornering. I love it! There is literally no noticeable vibration coming through either. I would definitely recommend these to all my VDub friends. Thanks 034Motorsport!!!! Great product!!!

Holding these mounts in your hand you can tell how much stiffer they are then the OEM mount. After install I noticed vibration is not as bad I was expecting it to be. Have had them in for a couple weeks now and over all I am very happy with these so far.

Installed these along while rebuilding my front suspension, they are awesome! Not only have I destroyed more than 6 sets of stock bushings over the years (2001 GTI, 130k), but no matter what I upgraded, adjustables, springs, bushings, ect.... it has never felt this sharp, and I have hopes that these will last much longer than stock. Well worth it, wish I had them many years ago!
