New Top Strut Kits For VAG Applications

First Line Ltd has unrivalled knowledge when it comes to replacement Steering & Suspension components, with an aftermarket pedigree few can match. This specialism allows it to identify those parts that not only satisfy the wide-ranging needs of the market, but can also provide it with the greatest vehicle coverage from the fewest part numbers.

A fine example comes with two Top Strut Mount Kit references that cater for multiple VAG applications, which enable factors and their workshop customers to provide the repair solution for more than 3.5 million vehicles in the UK alone!

First Line part number FSM5183 / Borg & Beck reference BSM5183 is a two-piece kit that contains a strut mount and strut bearing and fits an incredible 2.7+ million VAG vehicles from 2003 onwards, which includes Audi A3, Q3 and TT, SEAT Altea, Leon and Toledo, Skoda Octavia, Superb and Yeti and VW Beetle, Caddy, CC, EOS, Golf, Jetta, Passat, Scirocco, Tiguan and Touran.

Top mount bearing kit FSM5491/BSM5491 fits the later models and increases the coverage by another 0.8+ million and includes Audi A3 and Q2, SEAT Ibiza, Leon, Arona and Ateca, Skoda Octavia, Superb and Karoq and VW Arteon, Golf, Passat and Touran, this time from 2012 onwards.

As would be expected from the UK’s leading aftermarket Steering & Suspension supplier, the additions are buoyed by the company’s comprehensive support programme, which includes a superb identification tool within its WebCat online catalogue that provides layout positioning images for accurate look-up.

In addition, in common with all First Line Ltd components, these new kits are manufactured to original equipment specification and are fully quality tested to ensure they deliver optimum performance and maximum longevity, which is why they carry a comprehensive two-year/24,000 mile warranty.
