hi all touaregers :)
my T1 has 233K kms on the clock. (had only 150K when i bought it 6 years ago) during these 6 years i only changed 2 front lower control arm hydro bushings and thats it, have done lot of off-roading and made some long trips, as everything have got its time off course few front and rear suspension bushings need changing as the car make terrible Squeaking noise while i get in and out of the car and driving it :( (its embarrassing)
so few days ago I went to my mechanic in VW dealer in Tbilisi and he checked everything for me, so here is the list
1) front upper control arm bushings 2 on each side
2) 2 front lower inner control arm bushings ( I'v got Porsche Cayenne turbo S with only rubber, not hydro ones)
3) rear suspension control arm bushings 8 total (there are 2 arms on each side that need 4 small bushings, BTW there are 3 different types of bushings needed!!!)
4) also going to do what i wanted to do for a long time and put Porsche Cayenne turbo sway bars front with yellow DOT and rear with green DOT to improve handling of already very good SUV (my T1 is on AIR+rear locking diff and do not want to loose off road capabilitys ) i picked both sway bars for 60$ used, front one is a bit rusty and going to sandblast it in my sandblasting shop and powder coat it to make it like new again.
all the bushings that i bought are LEMFORDER (except the front lower ones that are form porsche dealer)
there are all the part numbers on the boxes so if someone will need them in the future.
also going to put new front Zimmerman rotors and Brembo pads :)
I've got all parts ready and in few days going to change them all together so any suggestions are greatly appreciated
kind regards, Nikoloz :)

I see a green dot sway bar in the last pic. ;) Be sure to let us know how this all turns out for you.

Posted a little bit of background info, for those who might read the thread in the future.

The green dot bars should be the factory standard for Touareg. The Touareg's handling during a quick maneuver is much more crisp now. No noticeable downside in plain driving in term of harshness.
VW
Front Bars:
7L0411025H - Brown 38x5, 4mm
7L0411025G - Green 38x5, 4mm
7L0411025E - Yellow 37x5, 2
7L0411025D - Blue

Rear Bar:
7P0511025G - Lilac also 7L0511025B
7P0511025H -Green 25mm
7P0511025J - Yellow 25mm also 7L0511025C
7P0511025K - Blue 23mm also 7P0511025A


Porsche:
Front Bars:
955-343-701-80 2014 TTS/GTS/S/Diesel/Base W/O DYNAMIC CHASSIS CONTROL, W/COMFORT SUSPENSION
955-343-701-70 2014 TTS/GTS/S/Diesel/Base W/O DYNAMIC CHASSIS CONTROL, W/O COMFORT SUSPENSION,

955-343-701-80 = 38mm (brown)
955-343-701-70 = 38mm (green)
955-343-701-60 = 38mm (orange)
955-343-701-50 = 37mm (yellow)

Rear Bars:
958-333-701-01 STABILIZER BAR 2014 TTS/GTS/S/Diesel/Base W/O DYNAMIC CHASSIS CONTROL, 25.0MM-GREEN MARK

958-333-701-20 STABILIZER BAR 2014 TTS/GTS/S/Diesel/Base W/O DYNAMIC CHASSIS CONTROL, 24.6MM-LILAC MARK

My reading is
Dynamic Chassis Control = PASM
Comfort Suspension = Air

So for steel T3, the green/green should match cayenne's setup.

well well well..... have some good and bad news....
good news is that i have everything fixed and done, now everything is fine :)
let me show what i found but please before you will see the photos watch this video and it explains everything that happened :(
it all started year and a half ago when i was having fun with my mates, few off road lovers have gathered and we were messing around. while this have happened. the field was covered with grass and i could not see the bump, suddenly very nasty sound and hole car jumped, later that day i visually inspected the car and it seemed fine and was not having issues while driving. after few month is started to make squeaking noise. and now i have seen the reason

ok so in total i have 8 new bushing in the rear and 6 in the front also i have new stabilizer bars swapped + alignment for Cayenne Turbo with air and the result is amazing :) its the best Touareg can get, ride is so much more flat and handling is sharp and feels amazing :) im sure new bushings also do effect the ride but anyway its all good now
