Just got a PM from Jim as It me he bought the beam off.
Just reading whats put I'm going with a bent arm/stub axle as the car the beam was from was a write off.
as far as I know both arms are GTI items.

From lowering my mates car to the same hight with a good beam (new bearings and pins at some point) the camber on the passengers side seams about right.


Well cheers for being honest about it's past Chris! Thumbs up

Small shame it wasn't mentioned at the time I bought it but I guess in the same respect I didn't ask (or assume for that matter). Dry

At least now we are pretty sure the old drivers side stub axel will cure the camber issue.

I see your local then!!
But as I;ve found hardly any beam is within tollance, I;ve know beam's to be changed only to find the other side goes out, Only real way to do it is measure what you have and then get some nice new Pin's made for the back to suit, not the cheapest way.
205's are the same, When I did one last week with Rose Jointed bottom arms, One side was almost fully in and the other about 1" out

There's a place in Chesterfield but I can't remember what they're called.
