Need a diagram for front strut mount hardware on 98 gti vr6

Can't figure out the layout on this, having issues with tire rubbing on strut, think it is coming from the mounts being improperly installed. can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    What was done to the vehicle to cause the tires to rub on the struts?

    Did you lower the vehicle? Possible Camber issue?

jack up vehicle ,remove tire/wheel,separate upper ball joint from steering spindle. next open hood, look at the right front strut mount. there is a nut on each side of the strut mount, these nuts hold the upper control arm to the vehicle. remove the nuts and pull the control arm out. install in reverse procedure.

My 95 toyota corolla makes grinding scraping noise when going uphill. It's coming from the right front of the car. Almost sounds like it's coming from the breaks or transmission. A mechanic thinks it could...


Bad motor mounts will not usually cause the kind of noise you describe they will cause more vibration to be felt at all times.

Sometimes the brake rotor dust cover plate can rub against the rotor and make a grinding/scraping sound. Raise the car, remove the wheel, and check the clearance between the dust cover and the rotor.

If your shocks/struts are bad the tire could be rubbing against the strut. Check the strut.

front stuts need replacement, buy this point it would be both. you can tell most of the time buy if you hit a pot hole on the left and it makes a nosie thats the side. but after a few days of driving like this both are in bad shape and need replacement.

there is no bearing its just the strut, you can tell buy getting a jack stand and lifting the front and moving the tire side to side and back to front. usaly anything over 10-20 thouthands of an inch is bad, and that mean if you feel it it's bad.

but anyways to replace it you will need a sop, you have to compress your front srping in order to remove and install a strut.

Tire size change


Yes you can - they're very close to the rolling diameter of the stock size (at an indicated 60mph, you'll be going something like 60.3mph). This will also keep your odometer within calibration.

I've been running that size on my A4 for several months now (I also had the same OEM tire size as you), and everything is perfect.
