Perfect parts and fast delivery to the UK!
“Recently purchased some diff mounts for my S2, I was very impressed with the quality of the parts, and the fit was perfect. After seeing the quality of those diff mounts etc, I don’t want to use anyone else. For this very reason, I will be placing another order for even more parts next week.”

Product Description

After long CAD development based on 3D scan of OEM subframe, tested with CAD FEA (Finite element method) and road going tests you can now buy brand subframe for front of your Audi/VW/SEAT/Skoda cars based on MQB platform with haldex. List of cars bellow.

Using same T45 tubing as in WRC cars, our subframes provide increased stiffness, mass reduction and delivers more precise handling. All factory parts bolt up to this unit, no other modifications are necessary.

This version is for cars looking for additional stiffens of the chassis. Mosty cars used racetrack (road courses). For cars that are used on drag strip we have this version – WAS-561.

Benefits (please scroll to the bottom of the page for additional list):
– 13.6 kg. It is 4.5 kg saving over OEM steel MQB subframe or 5 kg savings over OEM PQ35 (TT 8J, A3 8P) steel subframe.
– Possibility of adjusting camber, toe and bump steer.
– Additional track setup mounting for upper control arm – provides better camber gain and roll center
position (requires adjustable control arm to keep camber adjustment).
– One mounting subframe position, eliminates subframe shifting under the car. No need for subframe
locking kit / billet aluminium rear subframe inserts (weight savings).
– Increases chassis rigidity for improved handling performance.
– Additional rear-axle cross member. The reinforcement similar to Audi Sport rear-axle cross member will increases stiffness. This leads to even better vehicle handling at high speed and increasing lateral forces.

More pictures with additional information at the bottom.

– better access to car under body and enables wishbones change without subframe removal
– T45 (BS4T45 to BS4T100) tubing imported from UK and S355 metal sheets
– all components TIG welded
– delivered painted (powder coated) black or on special order (+50 euro) any RAL color
– can be used with OEM wishbones or our adjustable wishbones
– mounts to the OEM car body and no other modifications are needed to fit the subframe
– includes mounts for two OEM rear xenon lights sensors
– can be used with exhaust up to 4 inch with OEM center positioning.
– no need for subframe inserts or our aluminium subframe bushings

What is included:
– rear subframe powder coated in back.
– lower rear-axle cross member reinforcement bar
– set of 3 mm metal adjustable wishbone position shims for -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3, +4, +5  mm positioning.

Used in PQ35 and MQB platform cars (Type numbers in brackets):
Audi A3/S3 (8P & 8V & 8VFL 2012+) with Haldex
Audi RS3 (8P & 8V & 8FV 2013+)
Audi TT/TTS (8J & 8S 2006+) with Haldex
Audi TTRS (8J & 8S 2009+)
Audi Q2 (2017+)
Audi Q3 / RSQ3 (F3 2018+)
SEAT León Mk3 (5F) (2006-2013) with Haldex
VW Golf Mk5 Mk6 Mk7 (2003+) with Haldex

T45 is a very unique seamless carbon based steel tube that has been used in many applications in different industries. It is stronger than Co-Mo 4130 tubing that also used in motorsport. It is widely used in the aerospace sector in equipment such as pilot’s seats and crew’s seats due to the materials ability to withstand high G forces without snapping or splitting. This material is a Carbon Manganese based and conforms to the full Aerospace Specification laid down by British Standards.

Tensile: 700 – 900MPa,
0.2% Yield 620MPa minimum
Hardness Test: 201min – 262 max HB or 210min – 275max HV.

Notice: Sold for off road, track and racing applications only. Mounting the subframe may increase some noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) in the car. Our tests with a stock VW Golf 7R they showed very minimal NVH increase only at idle. We strongly advice to mount the subframe in qualified and experienced workshop.

Additional technical information:
One of the first things to do in improving stock car cornering performance is decreasing its ride height. Unfortunately, it lowers not only our center of gravity, but also roll centers what could affect negatively our responsiveness. To prevent it, our new subframe has additional, track setup mounting of upper control arm. Besides correction of roll center height, it also helps with camber gain (change of camber angle within suspension travel). Original MQB/PQ35 cars have almost zero of it, to stay within same, small, non-aggressive for tires camber, no matter if You are driving car alone or fully packed within additional few hundred kilos. In circuit racing, priority is to optimize camber gain, to reduce positive camber in corners for better grip and that is what our additional mounting provides.

Next disadvantage of stock rear MQB/PQ35 platform suspension in racing use, is huge influence of camber angle on bump steer (change of toe angle within suspension travel).

To help with that, we have added vertical slot on toe link mounting, to provide adjustability of bump steer. To compensate influence of every 0,5° of camber change on bump steer it is necessary to put toe link mount 1mm higher. So for example if You increase Your rear camber from -1,3° to -2,8° and You don’t want to change bump steer, You should move your toe link mount 3mm higher. With our subframes we are delivering special offset shims to provide quick and accurate adjustability by 1mm.

frequently asked questions

Is this product in-stock?

We keep 100s of Verkline products in-stock at any one time. If you urgently require a product please message the team prior to ordering to confirm stock availability.

 Can I install this myself?

Installation instructions are provided for almost all products to aid with installation.

What’re the benefits of adjusting the roll centre?

Without getting too deep into it, generally speaking, the higher the roll centre the less the vehicle will roll, the lower the roll centre the more the car will roll. Talking about road cars which are adapted to motorsport, on lowered cars without adjustable roll centres (pretty much all cars without motorsport suspension) they tend to roll more than standard. Raising the roll centre higher repositions the roll centre so that there is less roll.

What’re the benefits of adjusting the camber?

Precisely setting the camber on your car is essential for optimising the tyres contact patch under load which evenly distributes the forces across the tyre. Too much, or too little camber can cause the load to be distributed more on the inner or outer edge which can lead to accelerated wear and poor performance.

What’re the benefits of adjusting the toe?

Precisely setting the toe on your car is essential for optimising multiple aspects which contribute to performance such as corner entry handling, tyre wear (heat) and straight line stability.

What’re the benefits of adjusting the castor?

Precisely setting the castor is very important as this can increase the amount of outside wheel negative camber gain and inside wheel positive camber gain when cornering, further improving the tyre contact patch, whilst running less ‘static’ camber for reduced tyre wear in a straight line.

What’re the benefits of adjusting bump steer?

Bump-steer adjustment can reduce or increase the amount of toe change there is with suspension travel.

What’re the benefits of adjusting camber gain?

Camber-gain adjustment can reduce or increase the amount of camber change there is with suspension travel.

 What’re the benefits of eliminating deflection?

Factory rubber bushes allow for the suspension to move around in ways that allow the wheel alignment to change as they load up, making your car feel less precise and often more unstable. With the Verkline spherical bearings there is no movement which results in a direct and consistent feeling.
